ASUU strike has forced me into an urgent search for a husband – Gombe varsity student laments

Maryam Adamu, a 20-year-old Gombe State University (GSU) student, claims that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike has forced her to look for a husband urgently, Charmingpro reports.


In an interview with the Daily Sun, Maryam expressed her disappointment that the strike had disrupted her plans to graduate before the age of 20.


According to the 200-level Public Administration student, the ongoing strike and her inability to study before marriage has slowly killed her spirit.

“I cannot take it anymore. Our continued stay at home following the shutting down of academic activities since February is not going down well with us. Many of us have lost the spirit. As I speak now, if I am asked to choose between going back to school and marriage, I would put marriage first,” said the student, who disclosed that she had been carried away by studies and never thought of marrying before graduation.


“This strike has forced me into an urgent search for a husband because that is what I could think of while staying at home with no assignments and studies to keep me busy. Most of my friends who had married earlier when marriage was a no-go area for me are today nursing their one or two children and I am in a way jealous


“ASUU and government can continue with their games, all I care about and I am worrying about now is to get married so that I will not fall into things I will end up regretting because I don’t even know what I will be going back to do if schools are to be reopened today. They have killed the interest in me and so many of school friends. My parents have now picked interest in giving me out in marriage.” she added.
