Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that graduates from public Universities in Nigeria cannot compete with students from his private secondary school, the American University of Nigeria (AUN) Academy, operating in Yola, Adamawa state.
Speaking at a surprise birthday party organized for him by the school, Atiku while giving his vote of thanks said:
“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 can speak English in an error-free manner like the head boy of my secondary, 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” he said
