The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced that its extraordinary national convention will hold on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 in Abuja to approve amendments to the constitution of the party as well as adopt its manifesto for the 2015 general elections.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC said the proposed amendments when endorsed at the national convention, would align the party’s constitution better with the country’s Electoral Act also allows the party to function more efficiently.
The statement stated that the convention would adopt the six-point manifesto that has been extracted from the one submitted to INEC earlier for the purpose of the 2015 general elections.
”The manifesto to be adopted at the extraordinary convention of our party is specifically for the 2015 general elections. Because of shifting priorities, we do not believe that a party manifesto should be one for all time but a document that will adjust to the changing needs of the people.
”In this regard, we have conducted a survey to find out what Nigerians urgently need at the moment to raise their standard of living and ensure their security and welfare, which is the raison d’etre of any government. Based on the outcome of the survey, we have come up with a six-point manifesto, which we extracted from the one we submitted to INEC earlier.
”The six broad priority areas for the APC ahead of the 2015 general elections are National Security, Good Governance, Human Capital Development, Economic Development, Land and Natural Resources as well as Foreign Policy. The issue of job creation, fight against corruption, infrastructural development, health, qualitative education, regular power supply, etc are subsumed under these broad priority areas,” APC indicated.
Once the manifesto has been adopted at this convention, the opposition informed it would be made massively available to all Nigerians, complete with the full details and in many languages.
