The president of the federal republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, speaks on the reason he would not be leaving his children with inheritance.
He made this statement in Daura, Kastina State on Wednesday, 13 July ,2022. He emphasized on the need to impact his children intellectually other than material wise.
The president implored parents to inculcate value in their children, respect for constituted authorities and living a purposeful life through continuous education.
In his words:
”I was locked up for more than three years, after leading the country. At that point, I realized and I told my children that your net worth is what is in your head , not what you have acquired in life.
My focus has always been on training the children to be relevant wherever they find themselves . I told my children, particularly the girls , that they can only get married after first getting their degree.
They already know that I am not leaving anything for anyone to inherit. My greatest legacy to the children is to ensure they are properly educated.
We should ensure the children get proper education . The knowledge they acquire should not be towards getting government jobs. We don’t have jobs in government anymore. With technology, governments are becoming more smaller, nimble and efficient.
Emphasis should be now on skills acquisition and competence in creation and development of technology. During the COVID-19 , we asked all level 12 downwards to stay at home, and surprisingly the system worked effectively.”
