Okon Lagos likened the LP flagbearer to multivitamin syrup and said that the person he has chosen ahead of the 2023 polls.

CorrectNG reported earlier that Obi said incessant strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will end with his administration.
He stated this in Jalingo, Taraba while highlighting that so far ASUU has embarked on no fewer than 50 months industrial action since 1999.
Obi said he will ensure that paralysis of academic activities would be a thing of the past if given the mandate to lead Nigeria.
According to the former governor of Anambra, his government would dialogue with ASUU leadership to ensure that universities stay open during academic years.
The LP candidate said; “The 50 months ASUU strike in Nigeria is a setback for both the development of Nigeria and its educational system.
“What Datti and I want to do for Nigeria is to ensure that we move from consumption to production and there would be no more ASUU strike.”
He also vowed to make Taraba an economic hub and tourist attraction through the numerous untapped natural resources.
“The untapped mineral resources here and the Mambilla hydro is enough to transform the economy of the country and create job opportunities for Nigerian youths”, he said.
