Our reporter/ The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will not embark on industrial action if I am elected president, the presidential candidate of labour party, Peter Obi has said.
Obi, who made the pledge at a campaign rally in Owerri, the Imo state capital on Tuesday, noted that the future of any serious country is dependent on education and health, adding that he would invest in the two sectors.
“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,” Obi said on Tuesday.
“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.
“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.”
