Party says is manifesto will bring succour to Nigerians.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, said on Sunday that it would unveil its manifesto on March 6.
This was in a statement issued in Lagos by its interim National Public Secretary, Lai Mohammed.
Mr. Mohammed said the manifesto would be unveiled at the party’s national summit, which would be held in Abuja. He added the manifesto would give details on how the party would bring succour to Nigerians, describing it as a “road map to a new Nigeria.”
Mr. Mohammed said that the manifesto was a product of an “empirical and painstaking” process embarked upon by the opposition party.
According to him, it is a deviation from the old practice of packaging a party’s manifesto on a whim.
“With increasing security concerns, inadequate jobs and with new stories of corruption all over the nation, the APC decided to commission the largest ever public opinion survey in Nigerian history. This is to determine the current status of things in the nation directly from the people of Nigeria, the results were even more revealing than the APC had anticipated,” he said.
According to him, the unveiling of the manifesto, designed with the survey results in mind, would be the clearest indication yet that the movement for change has indeed begun.
