The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has assured Nigerians that if elected, his led administration will engage dialogue to curb incessant strikes in Nigerian universities.
Obi stated this during the presidential rally of the party in Owerri, Imo State on Tuesday.
The former Anambra State Governor said his administration would work with students and invest hugely in education, health and agriculture.
Obi said, “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.
“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 from this race,” he added.
