Atiku Goes Back To School For Masters’ Degree

Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has gone back to school to pick a Masters degree in a university in the UK.

Although Atiku had kept this under wraps for some time, the cat was let out of the bag yesterday by Dr Akinwumi Adesina, AfDB President.

Adesina made this known while delivering the convocation lecture for the graduating students of American University of Nigeria, in Yola on Saturday.

Adesina said Atiku is studying for a Masters’ degree in international relations.

“He loves education and its power to create transformation change”, Adesina said of Atiku, who he described as his benefactor, mentor, big brother, and friend.

“I was joking with him recently and asked why at his age, he had gone back to study for a Masters’ degree in international relations in the UK.

“He told me that he wanted to obtain the degree, so that he could find out why he did the things he did while in government”.

Atiku who was born on 25 November 1946 in Jada Adamawa state, is 74 years old.
