As the political campaigns start next week, a chieftain of the Labour Party, Prof. Pat Utomi, has revealed when Peter Obi’s manifesto for the 2023 elections will be available to Nigerians.
Utomi made the revelation while speaking exclusively with Vanguard in an interview in Abuja.
He said Obi’s manifesto is ready but carefully kept under wraps to prevent opposition candidates from copying it.
“There is a manifesto ready, and it will be released before the campaign starts. We have it, but we decided to keep it secret until campaigns start,” he said.
He maintained that the Labour Party has a structure far bigger than those of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
“Those who understand what structure means know that LP has better structure than PDP and APC in Nigerian terminology. NLC has 10m registered members, and we are going to energise all of them into a structure so that it becomes a superstructure.
“We have a big tent which constitutes several social movements, several political parties with labour party as part of it. Several of these political movements, like the Congress of Professionals, which is a great Nigerian project, consists of 6 million members in every part of Nigeria,” he said.
