We Cannot Grow Nigeria If We Do Not Invest In Education – Atiku Abubakar
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has reiterated the need for proper education in the country.
The former vice president said that “we cannot grow if we do not invest in education”.
Disclosing this in a statement, the CEO of Hemam Synergy Limited, Michael Ameh said that Atiku is a man who believes that human capital development is pivotal for nation building.
He said Atiku Abubakar “gave me the opportunity of going to the American University of Nigeria completely free on the scholarship of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar without ever meeting him. The total cost of the scholarship, put together was over N13,000,000 as at then.
“It is more like empowering the young generation and identifying the best, not just in education but also in business and other aspects of life.”
“Without His Excellency giving me that opportunity, there is no way I will be where I am today. There is no way I would have been able to access that capital at that young age to start up the company that we are running today.”
