Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has harped on the pertinent need for Nigeria to invest more in education.
Atiku reasoned that the more Nigeria invests in education, the more her citizens will become beacons of light, both locally and internationally.
The firmer Vice President said this a statement by him to celebrate Mr. Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian who was first elected as a Member of Parliament in Alberta, Canada, and has subsequently been appointed Minister for Municipal Affairs.
More importantly, Atiku stressed the need to highlight the role education played in preparing Mr. Madu for the spotlight.
He stoutly maintained that education is the single investment that yields the biggest dividend.
In the statement personally signed by him, the former Vice President said, “Today, I celebrate Mr. Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian who was first elected as a Member of Parliament in Alberta, Canada, and has subsequently been appointed Minister for Municipal Affairs.
“Seeing Nigerians prosper in Nigeria, and around the world, has always been the cornerstone of my vision, the Atiku Plan.
“Upward mobility and local and international successes, of the type displayed by Mr. Madu, go a long way in changing the international narrative of Nigeria, which, in recent years, has suffered some challenges.
“Even more importantly, we must highlight the role education played in preparing Mr. Madu for the spotlight. As I have said previously, education is the single investment that yields the biggest dividend. I should know, I have put my money where my mouth is.
“The more Nigeria invests in education, the more our people will become beacons of light, both locally and internationally.
“Today I celebrate Mr. Madu’s achievements. I am proud of you and will do all within my power to ensure that many Ahmadus, Gbengas and Emekas, follow in your footsteps”, he assured.
