The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the recently released manifesto of Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate- Peter Obi offers nothing refreshingly new to Nigerians but “fallacies and false statistics”.
The Director, Media & Publicity of APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Bayo Onanuga, in a statement today, also said Obi’s manifesto is a poor imitation of the programmes of the current APC-led administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
It could be recalled that Obi released his 62-page manifesto over the weekend. Tagged ‘It is Possible: Our Pact with Nigerians’, the manifesto was anchored on seven thematic areas: security, production, institutional reforms, the industrial revolution, infrastructural development, human capital development, and robust foreign policy.
The APC Presidential Campaign Council also said Obi’s policy document has exposed him as “ill-prepared for the titanic task of governing a country the size of Nigeria”.
Obi, a former Anambra State governor, with large following by youths, is in the 2023 race for Aso Rock’s top job alongside frontline contenders like APC’s Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
