Updated: March 7, 2021

Titi Abubakar, wife of former Vice President of Nigeria Waziri Atiku Abubakar, has admonished the new set of students graduating from the Feed and Read Programme of the American University of Nigeria (AUN) to show good examples of the values that can be imbibed  through education.

Mrs. Abubakar was a keynote speaker at the graudation ceremony for the pupils who previously were itinerant children but were recruited by the AUN as beneficiaries of the Feed and Read programme which offers the pupils meals everyday, medical care and also encouraging them to assimilate elementary lessons in arithmetic and English language.

In her address, the wife of the former Vice President remarked that all hands must be on deck to ensure that Nigerian children do not live by the street and saving them, especially the girl children from the dangers of alms begging and prostitution.

She said: ”We don’t want to neglect our children. We don’t want them to become a miscreant on the street of Nigeria. We want to feed them. We want to cloth them. We want them too to be people in future. And this is exactly what the founder (Atiku) is doing. That there is dignity in labor. That our children should not be found wanting.

“Our children should not be found wandering on the street of Rome because tomorrow we don’t know what they are going to become. These ones were picked from the street, they said, and you know they trained them, for nine months and now they are free to go into primary school. That is why there is no age limit in education.

These ones were being picked from the street; they had spent nine month, and we can see them – they can read, they can write, they have started speaking English. And only God knows, the sky is going to be their limit.”
