Popular singer, Simi has come out to blast Nigerian leaders over the lingering strike action by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
She recently revealed that it is pathetic that our higher institutions have been on strike for months because it keeps taking away the the hopes and dreams of the youth.
According to her, the odds are always stacked against the average Nigerian since our government never tries to make things easy for us.
She added that if our elected own leaders in our own country cannot have compassion on their own people, the youths are definitely helpless.
Her words, “Higher institutions on strike for months almost, if not every, year. The odds are always stacked against the average Nigerian. You spend the first half of ur life just trying to survive. To eat. To catch up. When you finally decide to settle, you don’t have enough to do even that
Taking away the hopes and dreams of the youth. Destroying their futures so they’re ready to settle for crumbs. Just so they can live to see the next day and fight for more crumbs. Because they’re not your own children, their futures don’t matter? Shame on you!
If the leaders in our own country cannot have compassion on their own people, then what can we really do? They get into power and abuse it, abuse the people they should be serving.
The rest of the world laughing at the so-called giant of Africa. Shame on all of you!!
Imagine doing a four-year course for eight years but still no job. This wickedness is too much.”
