My father Never Wanted Me To Go To School-Atiku Abubakar

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential flag bearer of PDP was speaking at a youth programme titled “Intergenerational Synergy on Government”, the programme was organised by PDP to celebrate the youths. While delivering his speech, Atiku Abubakar told the youths in attendance that the most important fundamental right of any youth is the right to education, Atiku said as a result of that he takes an exception to the ongoing ASUU strike and the inability of the government to resolve it, Atiku said under a PDP government or under his watch something like that will not happen. Atiku Abubakar also used the opportunity to tell the story of how his father tried to prevent him from going to school but didn’t succeed. Read the Atiku’s story below.


“I lost my father at about the age of 10, but before then he never wanted me to go to school, he did everything in this world to make sure i didn’t go school, he was hiding me from one house to the other and from one village to the other, but eventually he was forced to let me go to school. While in primary 2 I went to visit him and he said I will never go back to that school, when school resumed the clerk of the court came and arrested me and arrested him, they took me back to school and they took him to prison, the following day he was taken before the court and he was fined 10 shillings in those days, my father said he didn’t have money but my maternal grandmother paid the fine. After the fine was paid my father said he is reporting me to God, I never saw my father until he died, my maternal parents brought me up from primary to secondary and to university”.
