As reported by Daily Trust newspaper, Tinubu had previously denied the publication of his manifesto which surfaced online a few days after the conclusion of the APC convention.
What APC chieftains are saying
Bayo Onanuga, director of the media campaign group for Tinubu revealed the APC stalwart was still in consultation with relevant stakeholders in and out of Nigeria.
Onanuga said the Jagaban as he is fondly called is still working on his manifesto as it will be completed in September before the commencement of political campaigns for the 2023 general election.

Reacting to the delay of Tinubu’s manifesto, a source within Tinubu’s camp reiterated that Tinubu’s will be ready.
Another source hinted that Tinubu’s manifesto will be centred on the economy, corruption, and security.
Similarly, the director general of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, said the manifesto of the presidential candidate will definitely be in line with the manifesto of the party and anything contrary will be an overshoot.
Also reflecting on the possible manifesto of Tinubu, Yekini Nabena, a chieftain of the party says the manifesto of Tinubu will not go off what had been said in 2015 and 2019.
“You and I know that the major problems of this country are insecurity, corruption, and the economy. So I don’t think there would be any major changes from the 2015 and 2019 campaign principles of APC.”
However, an attempt to get a reaction from the national publicity secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, proved abortive as he did not respond to calls or texts.
