The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is an organization of all Academic Staff of Nigerian Universities. They have always been at loggerheads with the Nigerian Government over provisions of amenities and funding for the Universities. Each time ASUU goes on strike, Academic activities across Nigerian Universities are stalled.

Speaking on how she grew frustrated of the prevalent strike, Falilat explained that she was sustained by her resolve to bag a Bachelor’s Degree.


“One of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my life was to abandon my 3 years plus Unilag program after spending 4 years before getting in to start over in another country…”

“The 2020 ASUU strike broke me. Before then, my experience was not the greatest, Nigeria federal university system almost took my precious life but I was determined to get my degree before pursuing education elsewhere,” she wrote on her twitter handle.


Explaining how she got to Finland – a place she described as totally different experience, she stated that she had earlier wanted to go for the United Kingdom but was advised to go for Finland because of the cost of living.

“UK was my first choice but the UK is quite expensive for me to sustain. I had a discussion with @Deshsmalls one night &he told me about Finland. This was November/December, I made up my mind in January to just do it anyway.”


“I concluded my application the following year & I got the residence permit. I couldn’t discuss with many people asides my boss as it seemed like a crazy idea, dealt with anxiety a lot.”

“Juggling Unilag, my Finland application, & working full time, I asked myself if I was doing the right thing? If it’ll be worth it? It was not an easy decision but I can say for a fact that the experience is different and it makes it worth it for me. Indeed, khaki no be leather!” she wrote.
