Between FASA and SATIRE, Who Won?

 By Ajibade Abdullah Adewale

Over the last few months, silence has been a dominating feature of the Faculty of Arts Students’ Association even when the association doesn’t have an administration and also amidst corruption allegations.

However, their consciousness has resurrected after a few lines of satirical paragraph directed to the leader (s) of a faction (s) in the association went viral.

To begin with, some students who found it complicated to decipher the satirical part of the story which has generated this uncontrollable uproar has only proven the widespread claim that the association only boast of orientation but is not oriented. And any student who writes to counter the above will do a favour of “further acknowledgement”.

With the uproar that the article garnered, it is easy to deduce that FASAites have a lot to unveil, the rationale behind their silence remains blurry. How will students of one of the acclaimed politically oriented associations be silent when their voices need to be heard?

Daily, FASAites have always demanded accountability in silence. They murmur the mismanagement of the administration of that time (2019/2020) while they continually cannot have their voice heard. “For how long will FASAites remain mute and watch as the association deteriorates?” This question birthed the SATIRE.


The Faculty of Arts Student Association will only need to prove its status subsequently for a few lines paragraphs of SATIRE has revealed how fragile her mightiness has become.

To the “pro-corruption faction” who celebrated the innocence of their leader, it is high time they revisit the definition of SATIRE. To the “anti-corruption” faction who understood the SATIRE, this is a win for the progress of FASA.

On this note, like Muhammad Ali, SATIRE has stung the face of FASA. Make-up or bleaching oil can not garnish this face again, except there is an instantaneous change.
