Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has called
on parents to pay more attention to the education of their children. She made
the call at an event organized to present scholarships to 60 primary school
pupils chosen from among the less-privileged and orphans to enable them
complete their primary education with ease. The event held in Daura, Katsina state on Monday 4th
September, 2017.

Mrs.
Buhari
charged privileged Nigerians to
make more contribution to the education of children, as the multiplier effect
to the nation is enormous. She also called on parents to “show more interest and commitment in the education of their
children, especially the girl-child, as education can transform the lives of
the children, their parents and the entire country”

She described caring and support for
the needy and the vulnerable in the society as her own calling, especially, she
said, when it comes to education, which is a major and necessary tool for our
development as a people. She invited other well-meaning Nigerians to join her,
especially at this period of Eid el Adha,
when Muslims are enjoined to show
love and care for those on the lower rungs of the social ladder.
Highlight of the event was the
presentation of the scholarship to the children, while their mothers and
caregivers were presented with food items.
