OYOGist.com has learned that popular Nigerian award winning singer Simi, has reportedly taken to the social media to task the federal government on the ASUU strike which has plagued the Nigerian educational system for months.
ASUU has been on strike for the past 8 months as a sign of protest against the federal government newly introduced IPPIS payment system which was vehemently rejected by ASUU.
Singer Simi took to her social media to vent her anger at the current situation in the country’s educational system stating that the Nigerian government doesn’t have compassion on its own people.
“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 can’t 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 4yr course for 8 years…still no job. This modafukkin wickedness is too much.”
