The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi; and his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed on Tuesday vowed to end strikes by medical doctors and members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) if elected in 2023.
Addressing a crowd of supporters at a mega rally in Owerri, the Imo State capital, Obi said Baba-Ahmed as his running mate, they will ensure that power is given back to the people especially youths and women. He also said job creation, investment in agriculture and prioritisation of exports will be top in their agenda.
For the LP presidential candidate issues of ASUU strike, decay in the health sector and corruption will be a thing of the past.
This is the first major campaign rally of Obi in Imo, and as the 2023 elections draw closer, the party in the state said more programmes will be initiated to woo the electorate ahead of the elections.
