Nigerian Female Students need Mentorship- Idongesit Micah

Nigerian Female Students need Mentorship- Idongesit Micah


The President, National Female Students Association of Nigeria, Comr. Idongesit Micah, has recommended mentorship by women as a viable roadmap for female students’ successful transition to womanhood.

She made the call when she led female students on a courtesy visit to the National President, National Council of Women Societies, Chief (Mrs.) Gloria Labara Shoda, in her office in Abuja. 

She decried that female students in tertiary institutions have been relegated to the rear in the activities relating to the female folks in Nigeria. 

“More focus is tilted towards the Nigerian girl-child and women. The attention given to the girl-child in our country is restricted to the confines of primary and secondary schools. No programme has been done targeted at female students in tertiary institutions in this country by government.  

Comr. Micah added that “the 35% women affirmative action is only benefitting elderly women, as the younger ones are not carried along or mentored. 

The present generation of young females are so determined to change the women percentage of political participation in this country says NFSAN President. Our female students are winning as Students Union Government Presidents in various campuses in the country, and we are leading effectively.

 We are taking over territories, and we are territorial commanders.”
In her remarks, the NCWS National President, Mrs. Shoda thanked the female students leaders for visiting her. 

She admitted that enough hasn’t been done to mentor female students and promised that her organization will strive to correct the anomaly.

Shoda advised young women to be politically active and promised to absorb them into the NCWS activities and programmes.
