The Lagos State Government has debunked a claim by the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who claimed that only his state is not participating in the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).



One tweep with the username, Tony Montana, had shared a video clip of Obi from a studio conversation in which the former Anambra State Governor was commenting on the state of the nation.

Commenting on the ongoing ASUU strike, Obi claimed that the only university that's not on strike today is the Anambra State University and that was all down to what he did during his time as the governor of the state.

The presidential candidate said, "And they are coming every four years to give you 5,000, 10,00, do you want to continue like that or do you want your gratuities and pension paid as and when due.

"The lecturers who are not paid, the students who are not in school, it's for them to decide.

"You are talking about what I did... the only university that's not shut down today is the Anambra State University because of what Peter Obi did," said Obi.

Lagos govt reacts: Reacting to the video, Gboyega Akosile, the Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, quoted the original tweet with a comment to counter Obi's claim.

He said, contrary to the former governor's claim, there are other universities who are still in session despite the ASUU strike.

Akosile said, "Dear Mr. @PeterObi, why do you lie with ease? there are several Universities that aren’t on strike- Lagos State University @LASUOfficial, Kaduna State University, Kwara State University,

Rivers State University, Osun State University, Kogi State University etc are in session."

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Mr Obi will be caught in false claim or statistics.

One of the staunch supporters of the Labour Party presidential flag bearer has cried out online and laments that some groups want to hijack the work he has been doing for Peter Obi, especially the Peter Obi app he created. It is despicable for a self-appointed @peterobi support group to try to blackmail other support groups to bow down to them and then try to delegitimize a Peter Obi Nation app done by me and Naija Lives Matter. It’s this kind of territorial jealous...
