Cubana chief priest, the popular Instagram celebrity, has pledged support for students engaging in peaceful protest to put an end to the ongoing academic staff union of universities(ASUU) strike.
According to Cubana, the crime rate keeps increasing because youths are not properly engaged.
In a shared Instagram post on his page, Obi Cubana was seen alighting from his car to join students protesting while they jubilantly received him.
The video caption reads partly:
“If students begin peaceful protest because of this ASUU strike i go support them for the movement with my full chest just the same way groups bought aspiration forms worth hundreds of millions for politicians. the crime rate keeps increasing because the youths are not properly engaged with education.”
Analysing effect of strike on the economy, Cubana said: “our economy is collapsing because so many states like my state generate so much funds for their economy from these students when schools are in session.
Owerri has over 5 major universities in it, the city is nothing when schools are on strike, the city becomes completely dry, businesses that are around these institutions suffer so much which makes so many collapse completely”
“I wonder why politicians want to use their children’s education for 2023 campaign strategy. we no go gree oh !!!! parents wey say their children no go sleep no suppose sleep. we get numbers oh, we get mind oh, we get energy oh !!!! government should end this ASUU strike asap, education should be paramount.”
