Buhari urges parents to invest in education

President Muhammadu Buhari says education can be used to dissuade the youth from ideological manipulation.

He stated this at the APC presidential campaign rally at August 27 Stadium, Damaturu, Yobe State.

He urged parents to send their children to school and make them understand the benefit of acquiring knowledge through education.

He advised parents to strengthen their faith, and try their best to uphold the children and family God has entrusted to them.

On politics, the President challenged the party’s flagbearers in the forthcoming general election, to ensure good governance when elected and not to disappoint the electorate.

President Buhari explained that the governing party had done its utmost in the last 8 years, saying that it would continue to ensure the progress, prosperity and stability of Nigeria.

Presidential candidate of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, advised Nigerians to reject the lies peddled by opposition parties on the Buhari-led administration, stressing that his government is a government of progress, integrity and honesty.

‘‘We will give you good jobs that you can depend on. Agriculture will come back. Hunger will go away. We will give you what is necessary, consumer credit to build houses and roofs over your heads’’, he said.

Asiwaju Tinubu also promised to make the perennial ASUU strikes history, adding that undergraduates will not need to spend extra years in the university beyond the standard duration of course of study.
