Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, says the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) won’t go on strike if he is elected as the next president of the country in 2023.

Mr Obi spoke at a rally in Owerri on Tuesday and said his administration would dialogue with ASUU leadership to ensure that universities won’t be locked.

The LP flag-bearer said his administration would work with students and invest hugely in education, health and agriculture.

THE PUNCH reports that the former Anambra governor also reiterated his commitment to providing jobs and turning the country from consumption to production, adding that he and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, had clean records in academics and public service.

According to him, he said the people of Imo State could begin to export palm seeds if he becomes the next president.

Mr Obi said the rural dwellers across the country would feel the impact of his administration if he wins the next year’s presidential poll.

“If you make me your president and Datti my vice, ASUU won’t go on strike. We will dialogue with them. We will work with the students. The future of any serious country is dependent on their education and health sectors. I will invest hugely in those sectors if you elect us,” he said.

“We want to go back to Agriculture. That is why we want to turn Nigeria from consumption to production. We will create jobs and export, export and export.

“I and Datti are not corrupt. Our records are clean. Datti was a senator and I was a governor in Anambra. If you want to check my record, go to Anambra State and verify.

“As the governor of Anambra state, I didn’t allocate a plot of land to myself, my wife here or my children. If you see any land I allocated to myself or any member of my family I will quit this race,” the LP presidential candidate added.
