The singer, who won the ‘BBNaija lockdown’ season five in 2020 made this known via his Twitter page on Monday, April 25, 2022, while reacting to the strike led by the Academic Staff Union of Universities that has left Nigerian students at home for months.

“I’m scared ooo, I’m really scared. What kind of government is this? Universities are closed, they have been closed for months and this mandem are focused on elections alone,” he tweeted.

ASUU declared a month warning strike back on Feb.14 to press home their demands from the Federal Government.

At the end of the warning strike in March, the academic staff union extended the strike by another eight weeks.

The Joint Action Committee (JAC) has also extended the ongoing strike by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) by one month in protest against non-implementation of their demands.
