The Presidential candidate of the Labour party (LP), Peter Obi, has revealed the reason for the delay in releasing his manifesto for the 2023 Presidential Election.
Obi explained that “he is waiting for the positions of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) before releasing his manifesto.’’
The former Anambra State Governor disclosed this while speaking with BBC.
It was reported that Peter Obi had been criticised for delaying the release of his manifesto for the 2023 presidential election.
But, the former governor shrugged off the criticisms, stressing that the Country has a lot of ideas and documented policy programmes which had been rendered ineffective due to a lack of implementation and political will to do them.
The Director-General of Peter Obi’s presidential campaign, Doyin Okupe, had disclosed that the party’s manifesto will be unveiled ‘sometime next week’ adding that it will be different from that of other political parties.
