Time has changed, and the challenges facing the country and the world today, is forcing the nation's major opposition party into reworking its party manifesto to meet the exigencies of the time.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), according to a report by Daily Trust, is setting up a special committee comprising of members from the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), Board of Trustees (BoT), National Assembly Caucus, PDP Governors’ Forum and National Executive Committee (NEC), to remodel the party’s manifesto as part of strategies ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The party which says it is putting structures in place and working assiduously to topple the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2023, said time has shown that the country needs a more robust policies compared to what the party introduced while on power, and which it claimed the APC has bastardised.

According to the report, a NEC member who craved anonymity said, “We are going to inject new things into our manifesto before 2023. We need a more robust manifesto.”

“For instance, in the health sector, we were building Federal Medical Centres and Primary Health Care Centres to bring healthcare closer to the people.

“But it has become clear that what is required in Nigeria today is bigger than what those medical centres can do. So the party will reform its manifesto to address that.

“On the economy, PDP reintroduced mortgaging. We introduced E-wallet for farmers, we introduced the Social Investment Programme which the APC has bastardised. We need to keep abreast with the demands of what is happening in the world today,” he said.
