The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Gregory Onwubuasi Obi, has vowed that his administration will aggressively fight corruption if elected in 2023.

Obi made the promise in his recently released Manifesto for his 2023 presidential campaign titled, “Our Pact with Nigerians: Creating a New Nigeria“.

In the 72-page manifesto, Obi and his Vice-Presidential candidate, Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed, promised, amongst other things to secure Nigeria, insurgency, unite the nation and to manage the country’s diversity such that no one is left behind.

The former Anambra State governor also promised to restructure the polity through effective legal and institutional reforms to entrench the rule of law.

Part of the manifesto reads, “Shift emphasis from consumption to production by running a production-centered economy that is driven by an agrarian revolution and export-oriented industrialization.

“Restructure the polity through effective legal and institutional reforms to entrench the rule of law, aggressively fight corruption, reduce cost of governance, and establish an honest and efficient civil service.

“Leapfrog Nigeria into the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR), through the application of scientific and technological innovations to create a digital economy.

“Build expansive and world-class infrastructure for efficient power supply, rail, road and air transportation, and pipeline network, through integrated public-private partnerships, and entrepreneurial public sector governance.

“Enhance the human capital of Nigerian youth for productivity and global competitiveness through investment in world-class scholarship and research, quality healthcare, and entrepreneurship education.

“Conduct an afro-centric diplomacy that protects the rights of Nigerian citizens abroad and advance the economic interests of Nigerians and Nigerian businesses in a changing world.”
