A New Party For A New Nigeria
Nigeria is changing. We are a young and dynamic nation, where individual
citizens strive hard to improve their lives and those of their families. Yet
a culture of greed and corruption is holding us back, with trust in the
government’s ability to create jobs and address basic needs at an all-time
low.
The disappointment of people in their national government is
understandable, as more than 100 million Nigerians are forced to live on
less than 160 Naira per day.

A New Nigeria
The All Progressive Congress “APC” is A New Party for A New Nigeria.
The APC’s philosophy is the welfare of the common man, the assurance
of a great future for the youth, and a decent quality of life of all. The APC
is determined to give a voice to the youth, mekunu, the umu obenye, and
the talakawa.
The test we have adopted for all our policies is: “Will this policy create
jobs and benefit the youth and ordinary Nigerians?”
We are committed to nation where every citizen has the opportunity to
work and earn a decent wage, and where the disadvantaged elderly, the
disadvantaged disabled and the unemployed are assisted by the state.
A nation where the curse of corruption is no longer tolerated in our
political, social and civic affairs. A nation that is economically and
socially vibrant.
A nation that recognises our diversity as a source of strength.
A Nation we can all be proud of.

On Job creation:


Create Jobs
Roughly one in four Nigerians, and half of young job seekers are
unable to find work. The number of people whose jobs do not cover
the cost of food and housing is even greater. In addition, major
industries that pay higher wages account for just over five percent
of the economy.
The lack of jobs is the most critical challenge facing Nigeria today,
hurting every community and preventing us from being the truly
vibrant and prosperous nation we deserve. Building a diverse
economy that allows every Nigerian to earn a living and better
care for his or her family is our number one priority


APC’s Roadmap for Jobs Includes:
◾ Create 20,000 jobs per state immediately for those with a
minimum qualification of secondary school leaving certificate
and who participate in technology and vocational training.
◾ Encourage State Governments to focus on employment creation
by matching every one job created by the State Government
through funding with two jobs created by the Federal
Government in the same state.
◾ Direct conditional monthly cash transfers of NGN5,000 to the 25
million poorest and most vulnerable citizens upon demonstration
of children’s enrolment in school and immunization, to help
promote job empowerment
◾ Establish Technology/Industrial Estates fully equipped with ICT, power and other support
across the country to attract and encourage small-scale technology businesses and
other entrepreneurs.
◾ Provide allowances to discharged but unemployed Youth Corps members for 12 months
while they seek jobs or acquire training and skills for job placement or entrepreneurship.
◾ Establish plants for the assembly and ultimately the manufacture of phones, tablets,
computers and other devices.
◾ Pay a guaranteed indexed-linked price to farmers to ensure that there is always a ready
market for their produce, which will create more jobs, agricultural related employment
and sustain existing jobs.
◾ Provide One Meal A Day for all primary school students that will create jobs in agriculture,
including poultry, catering and delivery services.
◾ Create a scheme that provides matching funds for businesses that have already been
validated and secured funding elsewhere, including by borrowing, if such business will
create a minimum number of skilled jobs.
◾ Support training centers created for skills acquisition or vocational training by providing
infrastructure for such institutions and matching grants where necessary, and organize job
fair and recruitment exercises at such institutions.
◾ Embark on vocational retraining and skills acquisition for unemployed graduates, school
leavers and drop-outs emphasizing technology and construction such as plumbers,
electricians and tilers, which will feed the public works and social housing schemes
among others.
◾ Invest in large-scale public works projects, beginning in the first quarter of the administration,
including a modern national railway system and interstate roads, to energize our economy
and create new businesses and jobs throughout Nigeria.
◾ Implement a social housing policy of one million low-cost housing units in the first four years,
which will create housing and increase skilled and unskilled employment.
◾ Promote technology transfer, including investing in new and less expensive technologies
(as in the building of affordable homes) to create more jobs.
◾ Make Nigeria a global hub for Internet and telecommunications services, including
outsourcing and cloud computing, to create millions of new jobs.
◾ Dramatically increase the number of small and medium-sized enterprises that produce new
jobs, with industrial hubs focused on their creation and growth in all regions of the country.
◾ Increase investments in research and development, particularly in the areas
of science and technology, to create jobs in high-demand fields.
◾ Improve the entrepreneurial, vocational and technical skills of youth in areas
such as technology, agriculture, manufacturing and other important fields, to
prepare them for the jobs of the future.
◾ Ensure women receive fair treatment in employment, education and housing,
and encourage affirmative action for women based on merit.

On corruption:


Fight Corruption
Corruption is crippling Nigeria. Bribes and shady deals come at the
expense of real productivity by businesses and government, and
prevent us from investing properly into education, roads and health care
– the services people need to live better lives. A leading international
organization cites Nigeria as having one of the highest levels of
corruption in the world, a true badge of shame.

APC’s Roadmap for Fighting Corruption Includes:
◾ Show zero tolerance for official and/or private sector corruption.
◾ Place the burden of proving innocence in corruption cases on persons with
inexplicable wealth.
◾ Pursue legislation expanding forfeiture and seizure of assets laws and procedure
with respect to inexplicable wealth, regardless of whether there is a conviction
for criminal conduct or not.
◾ Strengthen legal provisions to prevent stay of proceedings and other delays in
corruption trials.
◾ Guarantee the independence of anti-corruption and financial crimes agencies by
legislation, charging their budgets directly to the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
◾ Stop corruption in our elections, in part by making the Independent National and State
Electoral Commissions (INEC) truly independent and free from political interference.
◾ Improve the ability of citizens to keep an eye on their government, with more open
access to government data, greater disclosure of government contracts prior to
awards and during implementation, and ensuring the people’s business is done in an
open and transparent way

To create a vibrant economy where jobs and opportunities
are more readily available, every individual, civil servant,
business and government leader must play by the same
rules, obey the law and reject the temptation of bribery and
corruption.

On free education:



Free Relevant Quality Education
Quality education is essential to prepare our youth for the jobs
of tomorrow. Unfortunately, our system is failing them: half of our
children who complete primary six cannot read, and more than 10
million children of primary school age do not attend school.

We must invest in quality teachers, schools and colleges to equip
current and future generations with the knowledge and skills they
need to gain employment, live productive lives and contribute to
the welfare of their communities. Our future depends on it.

APC’s Roadmap for Free Relevant Quality Education Includes:
◾ Make the right of every Nigerian child to receive a free, relevant and quality
education a reality, based on free and comprehensive primary and secondary
education.
◾ Provide free tertiary education to students pursuing Science and Technology,
Engineering and Math (STEM).
◾ Provide free tertiary education to education majors and stipends prior to their
employment as teachers.
◾ Create incentives and dedicate special attention to the education of girls.
◾ Ensure every child attending primary school is properly nourished and ready to
learn by providing a Free Meal a Day.
◾ Invest in better equipping and staffing Teacher Training Colleges and provide
financial and progression incentives to attract and retain good teachers.
◾ Revamp and restructure education curricula from primary to tertiary levels with a
view to ensuring students acquire the right skills for employment, entrepreneurship
and innovation.
◾ Prepare young adults for the jobs of the future by expanding the focus on science
and technology at our colleges and universities.
◾ Improve the ability of people to gain employment in a variety of fields through
greater access to technical and vocational training.

On Agriculture:


Restore Nigerian Agriculture
Nigeria was once a leading
agricultural producer, helping feed
other parts of the world. Today, our
decline in productivity means we
must import essential goods like
wheat, rice, sugar and milk, costing
us billions every year.
With 40 percent of our land able to
support farming, Nigerian agriculture
can and must be restored to move
families from subsistence farming,
create new jobs in agriculture and
related fields, and provide the
accessible and affordable supply of
food necessary to feed a nation.

APC’s Roadmap for Restoring Agriculture Includes:
◾ Provide a government-guaranteed market for agricultural produce at
world index-linked prices.
◾ Revive agriculture as an engine for economic growth and new jobs,
including the expansion of agricultural processing and manufacturing.
◾ Aid subsistence farmers in increasing food production and creating jobs
by modernizing and commercializing farm production, and increase the
availability of loans and capital investments for small and medium-scale
cash crops.
◾ Make more land available and prepared for farming, and encourage
young people to enter into farming through incentives such as incubator
hubs and price guarantees.
◾ Make sure farmers have access to the resources they need, such as
seeds and fertilizer, by enhancing agricultural extension services and
food inspectorate divisions.
◾ Ensure Nigeria’s food supply is affordable, reduces food-borne illnesses
and improves nutrition through a nationwide food inspectorate division

On Housing:

Housing Plan
Inadequate housing is one of the major challenges facing
Nigeria. Poor and working-class families lack homes, as
well as many hardworking Nigerians approaching the
end of their careers. APC is committed to increasing
the supply of quality housing through a policy of social
housing for the poor and vulnerable and affordable
housing for working-class Nigerians.

APC’s Roadmap for Social Housing includes:
◾ Achieve the construction of one million low-cost houses within
four years for the poor.
APC’s Roadmap for Affordable Housing Includes:
◾ Minimize income as a barrier for people to live in a safe and
affordable home, by increasing access to financing and
promoting a working national residential mortgage market as
a matter of urgency, so that Nigerians of varying income levels
can access affordable mortgages at single-digit interest rates
based on federal guarantees to the mortgage lenders.

On Healthcare for children and adults:

Healthcare Plan for Children and Adults
The health of our nation depends on the health of our people. Today,
the life expectancy of the average Nigerian is a mere 52 years.
Most families lack money for adequate health care, and too few
communities have access to quality health facilities or medical
professionals.

APC’s Roadmap for Health Care Includes:
◾ Provide free quality comprehensive health care based on a national health
insurance scheme.
◾ Stop all travel abroad at government expense for the purpose of medical treatment.
◾ Encourage medical professionals to establish practices and work in rural and
medically underserved areas, by providing incentives including tuition and other
training reimbursement for such professionals.
◾ Provide incentives for Nigerian doctors and health practitioners working abroad to
return home, to strengthen the health care industry in Nigeria and provide quality
care to those who need it.
◾ Double the number of practicing physicians and health care professionals in Nigeria
and increase the quality of federal teaching hospitals to world-class standards.

On Social welfare:

Social Welfare Plan for the less advantaged
Approximately 110 million
Nigerians live on less than
NGN160 per day. This condition
of extreme poverty contributes
to illiteracy, poor health, the lack
of or inadequate shelter, poor
nutrition and early death.
In the absence of a safety
net for the poorest and most
vulnerable, the vast majority will
die before medium to long-term
help arrives. The peculiarity of
Nigerian society also shows that
a significant number of unskilled
workers, and those in the informal
sector will have nothing to sustain
themselves in retirement.

APC’s Roadmap for Social Welfare Includes:
◾ Implement a phased Social Security Benefits Scheme for the unemployed
and vulnerable, beginning with poor disabled and poor elderly citizens.
◾Direct conditional monthly cash transfers of NGN5,000 to the 25
million poorest and most vulnerable citizens upon demonstration of
children’s enrolment in school and immunization, to help promote job
empowerment.
◾ Alleviate the sufferings of pensioners in receiving their pensions by
ensuring that pensions are paid on time, and substituting long distance
travel and difficulties associated with going to Abuja or state capitals with
a procedure that brings both the verification and payment process to
Local Government Areas.
◾ Promote legislation and initiatives that protect vulnerable and disabled
people from discrimination and exploitation.

The difference between what the APC says and what the PDP said it will do is that the manifesto of the APC Is a proven and fact backed document developed from the master plan of the Fashola led government of Lagos state mixed with the Kwankwaso's transformation of Kano and the doggedness of oshiomole in Edo state and Amaechi's revolution against the cabal in Rivers state.

Our manifesto is not about what we intend to.do, it is about what we are doing in Lagos, Kano, sokoto, rivers, Edo, IMO, ogun and others states we govern and want to replicate same at the National Level.

Only foolish and stupid people do something over and over in the same manner in 16 years and yet expect a different result. The PDP is an enemy of Nigeria, let's join hand and vote them out.

Re: APC: Road Map To A New Nigeria. by Gbawe2: 1:03pm On Nov 30, 2014
On critical infrastructure.

Build Roads, Power and Infrastructure
A Nigerian economy that produces jobs requires a modern day
infrastructure that includes affordable and reliable power, quality roads
and improved transportation.
Corruption and mismanagement have cost Nigeria dearly. While
80 percent of the government’s revenues are derived from oil and
gas – a resource that belongs to all Nigerians
– considerable money is lost every day to inefficiency and corruption
Nigeria’s lack of reliable electricity and poor
transportation system have made business
activity and the movement of people and
goods more difficult, raised our cost of living
and caused needless deaths and property loss.


APC’s Roadmap for Roads, Power and Infrastructure Includes:
◾ Provide captive power to critical facilities.
◾ Build an integrated gas pipeline across Nigeria to
increase the availability of clean energy at a lower cost.
◾ Construct an interstate rail and highway system that
links major cities and centers of production.
◾ Increase Nigeria’s broadband Internet capacity through
a national fiber-optics network to spur economic growth
and create thousands of new jobs.
◾ Develop an integrated inter-modal transport system that
maximizes the transportation of goods, raw materials
and people.
Re: APC: Road Map To A New Nigeria. by donphilopus: 1:04pm On Nov 30, 2014
This corruption ish is the number one thing Buhari should say NO to immediately he's sworn in come next year. After the Politicians have enriched themselves without any prosecution, our so-called University Dons have also embraced it. Telling a student to bring N5,000 before he can pass a course even when (s)he has written well is bribery, which is corruption, though it may not be corruption to our President, but "ordinary bribing". I'm very certain that with all these we're seeing, APC is definitely gonna change the status quo!

Jonathan's administration has not only promoted corruption, but has also failed the Nigerian Education system. Only APC/Buhari can repair all the mess in the system!

It's said that only the foolish person keeps doing same thing over and over again and expect a different outcome. We've exhausted our hope and patience in PDP-led government at the center and the time has come to try a credible alternative to be lead by GMB.

Have u seen the debt profile of Lagos relative to other states? Inspite of all of Fashola's penchant for looking for all avenues to tax the public?

This is why it is important that promises are backed by clear plans to pay for it.

If given unlimited resources we can all build Utopias. But unfortunately our resources are limited!
