Reduce School Fees At AUN- Kwankwaso Asks Atiku

Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has asked his counterpart in Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar to demonstrate his seriousness of providing qualitative education for Nigerians, by reducing  the school fees being paid by students in American University of Nigeria (AUN), a private university established by the former vice president in Yola, the capital of Adamawa.

Kwankwanso gave the charge while answering a questions on ways to improve Nigeria’s education sector at the ongoing at a town hall meeting organized by Arise TV, Centre for Democracy and Development, CDD, in partnership with Vanguard Newspapers.

 “I have to thank Waziri, he has a university, which is a very good thing. The only thing is that he should try and make the fees much lower so that our teeming supporters and Nigerians, as many as possible, can join the university”, the NNPP candidates stated 

Kwankwaso who blamed the situation in public university system on insincerity and lack of trust, added that he would encourage the private sector to invest on education from the primary to the tertiary levels

Also reacting to the same question, Atiku described education as the most important tool to get young Nigerians rightly educated

Atiku who stressed the need to provide  qualitative education that would serve as  catalyst for the nation’s growth, said that more funds should be invested in the sector.

His words: “The most important thing is to get our kids educated. And not only educated but rightly educated. And then they can make themselves available to the private sector for growth—which is the engine room of the economy.”

Atiku also recalled how he introduced the Universal Basic Education(UBEC) while in office as vice president which made it compulsory for every child in Nigeria to receive education free of charge from Primary to Junior Secondary School.

He said the initiative which was introduced by PDP will correct the challenges in the Nigeria’s educational system if well implemented
