Flashback 2016

‘Nigerian public varsities graduates can not compete with my secondary school students’

19 November 2016

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has described graduates of Nigerian public universities as brainless, saying they can not communicate in English with the scholars of his private secondary school, the American University of Nigeria (AUN) Academy.

Abubakar, who spoke on Thursday night in Yola during his birthday celebration organised by the management of AUN, mentioned public universities graduates can not match into personal industries due to their poor education and character.

“I was in the University of Zik in Akwa in Anambra State on Wednesday on the invitation of the university. There is no student in public universities that may speak English in an error-free method like the head boy of my secondary, who just finished addressing us now.

“When the head boy of AUN Academy, Abdullahi Sani, began speaking, I was thinking it is one of the lecturers in AUN, but just for him to introduce himself as the head boy of AUN Academy,” he acknowledged.
