Former Nigerian Vice President has mocked students of Public Universities in Nigeria. While speaking at a birthday dinner organized by him by his secondary School – American University of Nigeria Yola, Atiku Abubakar said that students of Public Universities can not speak English as good as the Head Boy in his secondary school.
I was at (Nnamdi Azikiwe University) in Awka in Anambra State on Wednesday on the invitation of the university. There is no student in public universities that can speak English in an error-free manner like the head boy of my secondary school, who just finished addressing us now.
When the head boy of AUN Academy, Abdullahi Sani, started speaking, I was thinking it is one of the lecturers in AUN, but only for him to introduce himself as the head boy of AUN Academy.
The former Vice President has however distanced himself from the said quote. He said via a post on Twitter that he was misquoted
