The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has boasted he and his vice presidential candidate, Datti Baba-Ahmed are not corrupt politicians and anyone interested can go and verify.

Obi stated this when he spoke at a campaign rally in Owerri, the Imo state capital city, on Tuesday.

The former governor of Anambra said the future of any serious country is dependent on education and health, adding that he would invest in the two sectors and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will not embark on industrial action if he is elected president.

“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,” PUNCH quoted him as saying.

“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.”

Obi said he and Datti Baba-Ahmed, his running mate, have clean records, having held public offices in the past.

“I and Datti are not corrupt. Our records are clean. Datti was a senator and I was a governor in Anambra,” he said.

“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.”
