The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has finally released his campaign manifesto, ahead of the 2023 general election.
Naija News reports that the 62-page campaign manifesto is titled “Our Pact with Nigerians: Creating a New Nigeria“.
This is coming a few days after the Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo, dared Obi to produce his campaign manifesto before Tinubu would agree to a debate.
The campaign manifesto was revealed on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at the LP Secretariat in Abuja.
The manifesto unveiled Obi’s proposed plans to lead Nigeria if elected as president and Page 18 of the document itemized his economic plan founded on a shift from consumption to production by running a production-centred economy that is driven by an agrarian revolution and export-oriented industrialization.
Tinubu Shun Another Town Hall Meeting
Meanwhile, APC has released a statement explaining the whereabouts of its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as he shunned another invite for a town hall meeting.
Naija News understands that Arise Television had invited the former Governor of Lagos State for another debate despite stating earlier he would not attend any of such during his electioneering campaign.
Amid the development, reports in some quarters alleged that Tinubu, scheduled to speak at Chatham House on Monday, was denied a visa to the United Kingdom (UK).
The APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has, however, faulted the viral reports noting that its candidate is already off to London.
Director, Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga confirmed this in a statement issued on Saturday, Naija News reports.
Onanuga also took a swipe at Arise Television over its constant broadcast of an advertisement about its scheduled town hall meeting which Tinubu had already declined participation.
