I am not leaving any inheritance to my children – Buhari spills



Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he plans not to leave any inheritance to his children.

During a visit to the Emir of Daura, Dr. Faruk Umar, at his residence in Daura, Katsina State, Buhari said he would not leave any inheritance behind for his children.

According to the President, the only asset he is leaving for them is the training and education he ensured they got.

Speaking further, Buhari also pleaded with parents to inculcate the right values in their children, including the fear of God and living a purposeful life through continuous education.

He said; “I was locked up for more than three years, after leading the country. At that point, I realised and I told my children that your net worth is what is in your head, not what you have acquired in life.

My focus has always been on training the children to be relevant wherever they find themselves. I told my children, particularly the girls, that they can only get married after getting first degree.

They already know that I am not leaving anything for anyone to inherit. My greatest legacy to the children is to ensure they are properly educated.

We should ensure the children get proper education. The knowledge they acquire should not be towards getting government jobs. We don’t have jobs in government anymore. With technology, governments are becoming more smaller, nimble and efficient.

Emphasis should now be on skills acquisition and competence in creation and deployment of technology. During the Covid-19, we asked all level 12 downward to stay at home, and surprisingly the systems worked effectively.”
