According to the spokesperson, under the Labour Party, the issue of ASUU or any other industrial action in the country will not last more than one day.
The Labour Party has said that its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is the silver bullet that will end the frequent strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
What happened: According to Pulse, academic activities at public universities across the country have been put on hold for almost seven months because the Federal Government and ASUU couldn’t come to an agreement on the renegotiated 2009 agreement between the two parties.
ASUU has said that professors will only go back to work if all of the union’s demands are met by the federal government.
Earlier this week, an industrial court said that ASUU had to stop its strike, so the government told universities to reopen and get back to work.
However, the administration quickly rescinded the directive, leaving the status quo unaltered.
LP has the answer. Party spokeswoman Yinusa Tanko told Nigerians that Obi would solve the FG-ASUU standoff within 24 hours while talking about the Labour Party’s plan for education in Nigeria.
On Thursday, September 29, 2022, on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily, he provided the promise.
Words of Tanko: “I can tell you that the ASUU [strike] or any previous strike that has taken place in this nation will not last more than one day under Labour Party control.”
The spokesman maintained that Obi’s objective is to develop Nigeria into a producing nation.
In Tanko’s words: “He was traveling from Maiduguri to Abuja when he noticed the enormous acreage in the northern region of this country. He stated that the agricultural riches of this country are located in the north.
When we engage in the agricultural sector, many of our youths, particularly those who are capable and willing in the north, will be changed into working instruments that will improve their economic well-being, produce for the nation, and transform Nigeria into a producing nation.
“He also sees Niger State as a state that encompasses more area than the Netherlands, and he says that state alone can continue to create the commodities and assets that may be used to turn around this country’s economic position.”
