What I will do to education when I become President next year, by Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has pledged to devote 21 percent of the federal budget to education if elected president next year.

Atiku in a statement on Saturday by his Media Office said this is in response to the feat by Apple Inc which became the first private company in the world to be worth $1 trillion on Thursday, August 2, 2018.

In an editorial opinion penned for publication in ThisDay, Atiku said that knowledge was the main raw material for the founding, development and success of Apple Inc.

In the article titled "What Nigeria Can Learn From Apple’s Trillion Dollar Status" Atiku ‎said, "I pledge that if I am chosen by my party, the PDP to be its presidential candidate, and if I am subsequently elected President by Nigerians, I will go above and beyond the United Nations recommendations and ensure that a minimum of 21% of the federal budget is devoted to education."
