In a subsequent tweet, the undergraduate revealed the different levels of stress people in federal universities go through. She listed overbearing lecturers, housing, and feeding expenses as some of them.
She added that despite all that, the perennial clashes between the lecturers’ body and the government always happen.
My children will never face the same thing
A part of her tweet read:
“Rent of 4 years would turn to Rent of 6 years, struggles of 4 years continues. they’d disrupt your plans, putting a halt on your life just because you chose education.”
The student vowed that she would never let her future children pass through what she suffered at the hands of ASUU.
She said that though she is just in her 400 level, if she had the chance to start all over abroad, she would gladly take the opportunity.

Below are some of the reactions to her post:
"Well, the bright side to not having it easy is that it pushes you to be innovative. It constantly fuels your desire to "have it easy", which you have expressed by tweeting this. The desire puts you one step closer to actually making it happen.."
"I feel your pain my dear sister.. may God pay both ASUU members and their family and federal back with same affliction they meted against u in larger proportion!!!"
"I'm exhausted at this point."
"Studying in a Nigerian federal university is a pain. Apart from the ASUU thing, do those guys even really deliver? Just unnecessary hardship and some people trying to make live miserable for you by being unreasonable difficult. But really though, do they pass knowledge?"
ASUU strike, a blessing in disguise
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young Nigerian man with the Twitter name Olayinka revealed how the present strike by ASUU has been a blessing in disguise.
While many students are lamenting how the strike is affecting them, the young man said the strike action has given him more time to work on his craft.
