Win a full scholarship for your #EducationSolutions

 By Atiku Abubakar

My name is Atiku Abubakar. I wouldn’t be who I am today without education.

I have always talked about how I attended school very much against the wish of my late father. My dad was actually sent to prison for barring his son from access to education. As my biography makes clear, I only started attending school after the authorities put my father in jail. Amazingly, this poor boy who could have missed the chance of an education grew to occupy one of the highest offices of the land. This is the power of education; it holds the potential to transform lives by liberating human beings from poverty, ignorance and disease.

Because of this personal example, all my life I have aspired to, working with fellow countrymen and women, create and expand access to education for every child in the land. More than twenty years ago, long before I became Vice President, with the able support of my wife, I started my first school, a kindergarten/primary school. In the time since then the venture has expanded to university level, providing world-class education to multitudes of young persons – many of whom are indigent students who get generous concessions and scholarships, because of my firm belief that poverty should never be allowed to stand in the way of a great education.

But in all of this I have remained dissatisfied. I have always felt that I could do more, that Nigeria could do more, for the proper education of our young people. And then I recently got active on social media, an experience that instantly made me wish I had done this much earlier. The very insightful conversations I regularly have on the platforms have demonstrated to me that the solutions to Nigeria’s education problems are best known by the users of the system, our young people; the ones currently bearing the brunt of the failings.

Over the last 10 years, I have contributed a small fortune in scholarships, through yearly endowments. This year, I intend to continue that tradition, but with a small twist: I would like to combine that traditional scholarship award with an opportunity to let young Nigerians develop their ideas about how to save Nigeria’s education system.

So, this year, one full scholarship, tenable in a Nigerian or foreign institution, will be going to the winner of a competitive process – an essay contest.

There will also be consolation prizes.

My office has helped to put together a formal process for applying for the scholarship.

I sincerely hope this competition will spark interest among the most important stakeholders in our nation’s schools, Nigeria’s passionate and thoughtful young people.

I encourage you to please spread the word.

And may the best woman or man win.

      Atiku might have made his mistakes, but how many Nigerian leaders want to correct their mistakes? How many of them care about Education? Appreciate Atiku now, for we don’t know when his likes will emerge again. Thank you, Atiku.

    It should be pretty clear to doubting Thomases by now that your passion for education is real and deep. That you do not consider it as a hundred meters dash but a marathon.

Kudos for matching your resources with your conviction. May the Almighty continue to do for you what you cannot do for yourself to His glory and the betterment of Nigerians especially its youth and our nation in general!

  • Usman Aliyu says

    This is may answer to the question on the solutions to Nigeria’s education problems which vested on youth knows in the system, recently ASUU is in the brant of the failings? Answer> Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others but may also be autodidactic.

    Sir,i must commend you for such a laudable program and vision for Nigerian youths.i am not a praise singer,but wat is good is good and must be encouraged,but sir it would have been much better if this essay competition was to be held is states across the country specifically education least developed states and states with very high levels of poverty so that the poor or disadvantaged people can really have access to it.many poor people dont have access to a computer and this process might be a little difficult.i would suggest you make it written test in specific centers across the country such that it could reach the poor.am a youth activist and a student myself and having worked with and still working with so many youths i think i have an idea of what am saying.anyway its a mere suggestion and my view,u might have something better.kudos to you and your team.

  • Kenneth kelvin Orji says

    With due respect sir This is my answer to the question.. How can Nigeria education be saved?…before I delve further,I’ll like to talk on some various fact,which may likely be the importance of education which you have laid great emphasis or reasons for the problems facing Nigeria’s education and recommendation towards this issues.. As its been long said you can never solve a problem with out identifying that you have a problem..
    Indeed nigeria do have several problems in educational sector, the unparalleled misshapes taking place in our country focused in our educational area, this may be seen as little Changes or event occurring in our society but to a large extent has lead to a frustrated youth,the ongoing ASUU strike is quite trivial to what I speak about..in my resent research I discover that in 1997 and 2000 statistics show that federal government expenditure on education was below 10% of overall expenditure only up to this present year where the incumbent government allocated an undisclosed billon of Naira to our educational sector..from what You have said so far, sir.. I think you have made a high elaboration of how important education is to the people of Nigeria and also how it turned to be a back bone to your career up-till date, so if the government share the same ideology as you do,why can’t they spend more on education only with the hope that the citizens of nigeria who Patronize this opportunity can turn out to achieve 1/10th of what you have achieved . It is so glaring that situation nigeria finds herself, coupled with the unfavorable misshapes frustrated those who need to be educated from seeing the importance of education,the lack of jobs after graduation had probably dissatisfied a lot of youth from building a career with education, to an extent most people patronize schools abroad to schooling in our beloved country, only to leave and never return back home..the extent at which our system has been badly dilapidated can not be expressed with words rather it can be fathom when we share the ideology that potential Nigeria’s are been wasted each day the government fail to take what is important into account..

    Without laying accusing fingers on Nigeria’s political system which should be held accountable in areas such as Malicious level of corruption lingering in the nation,I think a way forward will be..

    Good leadership : the presence of a leader who has a clear perspective towards the importance of education makes for the goal of reshaping the educations system better, he or she would be a role model to be looked up to.. “But sorry to say” most of the role models we have in nigeria never disclose their educational background to the society only weeks before being appointed to office

    Provision of adequate Facilities that encourage education… The lack of facilities has been a major issues which had driven most parent to send the children abroad for studies..

    The government should Create a visible career that is encouraging to students to motivate them towards education…provision of job and many more..

    Proper accountability for funds allocated for educational project..

    Since our emphasis lies on delivering highly educated nation,the private university’s shouldn’t be out of the picture as they also make part of it.. Private universities should be monitored in areas such as availability of needed facilities,
    level of lecturing service rendered
    Experience of lecturer and also the practicality of what is been thought in class room been applicable in the outside world.
    Also the use of good lecturer with high class degree goes along way in the level of knowledge delivery made to each student in class room..

    Most lecturers and students are still ignorant to the exposure or the advancement of what technology has to offer to our generation .
    Students and mostly lecturer shouldn’t be mentally equilibrium but should be abreast with the new advancement in technology.. it shows a high level of ignorance when most lecturer still stick to the old way of doing things or providers technical solutions to problems

    Parent counseling … to most parents the beauty of most profession compel parents to choose career for their children… To an extent students should be encourage and educated in there chosen area, in a broader view diversity such as having various people in different areas who are well educated make the nation more competent…with great enthusiasm.. I hope my ideas a valuable..

    Good to hear that scholarship is open to all…but there is a social stratification in the Nigeria economy that should be fully considered…

    This seems like a very good opportunity for students. However, a more general approach would have been better. Millions of students have abandoned their education because of their financial limitations. I only wish more influencial people like Atiku would stand up against illiteracy in our country… maybe the problem would be solved. Now some people will say all sorts about Atiku being a bad leader and all… please do not discourage those who might benefit from this opportunity. Let the young ones grow. Your time is up. It is time for the new generation to live. Let your past misunderstandings remain in d past.
