Simi Blasts Nigerian Govt Over Prolonged ASUU Strike

Simi, a popular Nigerian musician and celebrity has expressed her displeasure over the prolonged strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and the general delay in the Education of Federal and state varsities in the country.

Her displeasure was expressed on social media via her Twitter account @SympLySimi. Here's her reaction: 

"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"

Her tweets received many replies from other concerned Nigerian students and other celebrities. You can follow the thread here
