APC's Manifesto - What You Have Been Asking For by chemali: 12:46pm On Dec 19, 2014
The challenge facing us as Nigerians is whether we have the will and courage to unite to radically reform, modernize and move our nation forward – not looking backward to the failed policies and practices of the past. It is no longer a question of choice but of will and courage!

This Manifesto outlines our side of the social contract with the people; what APC will do to change Nigeria. We cannot do it on our own, we need the people’s consent and participation. Below we outline Eight pledges for a better Nigeria. They form a new, honest contract with Nigeria.

During our first term in office, the APC government will:

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Create 3 million new jobs a year through public works programmes and shifting the economy towards value-added production will be our primary economic target.

Security

Employ at least an extra 100,000 police officers and establish a properly trained and equipped Federal Anti-Terrorism Multi-Agency Task Force to destroy Boko Haram and any form of insurgency.

Security

Introduce an immediate pay rise and improved conditions for all five security services

Corruption

Adopting a zero-tolerance approach to corruption – rooting out dishonest public servants and imposing tough sanctions including jail sentences.

Youth

Provide interest-free loans for university/technical school students who meet the required entry qualifications. We will fund this by providing guarantees to the banking sector and by absorbing the interest.

Education

Introduce a free daily school meal for all children attending primary school.

Poverty

Introduce the first phase of direct conditional monthly social security payment for 25 million of the poorest Nigerians

Health

Create a network of local health centres providing free services and drugs such that no one lives more than 5km from help.

Federalism

Create a more equitable distribution of national revenue to the States and local governments because this is where grassroots democracy and economic development must be established.

NOISE!!!!!

They should include
1. Install toll gates on existing roads like in Lagos
2 1000% increase in school fees
3. Dogs and baboon will soak in blood
4. Spread of sharia through out the country
5. Attend to muslims only issues as Moslems will vote only Muslims as urged by Buhari
6. Stop the attack on Bokoharam because its an attack on northern Nigeria
7. Form a parallel government if we dont always have our way

This is the honest unsolicited manifesto by the APC which was not aimed at sugarcoating policies as listed above. This is the APC we know, the APC we see and the APC we experience at the moment.

This is a party built on lies and starving civil servants in Rivers state whose funds are used to sell a deceptive manifesto.

When will your Presidential candidate defend and talk about this manifesto live on TV?

No one has time to read a long book

It's the digital age, Buhari should announce his manifesto himself

That's the price of running for election in the digital age

Campaign season just started. Take a chill pill

Thank God I am a British citizen. The sheer absurdity of Nigeria's political discourse never ceases to amaze.

A manifesto that lists a set of uncosted objectives is an insult to any educated person's intelligence. Promises to build refineries, infrastructure and raise spending as a percentage of GDP are abundant but no word on the costs and how this is to be paid for. And these are educated Nigerians.
