Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, says the government is failing in its responsibilities to the youths,TheCable reports.
The former presidential candidate spoke on Friday at the graduation ceremony of Baze University in Abuja.
Abubakar said the attacks on schools across the country pose a serious threat to education.
“How does education improve a society? Education, knowledge, is the foundation of any society. In our globalised and technological world, national wealth is more and more based on knowledge, innovation and on entrepreneurship. It is education that makes these possible. And especially for a country like Nigeria, that education must be available to girls as well as to boys,” he said.
