Peter Obi, the Labor Party (LP) presidential candidate, has finally released his manifesto ahead of the 2023 election.
Obi unveiled the 62-page manifesto via his Twitter account on Sunday.
The manifesto is titled “It’s Possible: Our Pact with Nigerians.”
In the manifesto, the former Anambra state governor listed seven priority areas his administration would focus on if elected president in 2023.
In recent days, Obi has come under fire in some quarters, especially among members of the All Progressives Congress for not having a manifesto.
In October, the LP presidential candidate distanced himself from a circulating manifesto that was said to be his attribute.
Obi had said that he would personally release the LP manifesto to the public when it is ready.
In the manifesto released on Sunday, the former governor of Anambra State promised that Nigeria would move from a consumer economy to a production-focused economy.

The manifesto says: “Reshape politics through effective legal and institutional reforms to entrench the rule of law, aggressively fight corruption, reduce the cost of governance, and establish an honest and efficient civil service.
“Leap Nigeria into the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) through the application of scientific and technological innovations to create a digital economy.
“Build expansive, world-class infrastructure for efficient energy supply, rail, road and air transportation, and pipeline network, through integrated public-private partnerships and public sector corporate governance.
