Buhari To His Children: ‘Your Net-worth Is In Your Head, Not My Assets’



The Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, has declared that his children are aware that he is not leaving material possessions for anyone of them to inherit, stating that his children’s net-worth is in their heads, not what he has as assets in Life.

The presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement, said Buhari spoke on Wednesday during a visit to the palace of Umar Faruk, Emir of Daura, in Katsina state.

The president was quoted as saying more time should be given to coach future leaders with basic knowledge of moral values, as the fast-changing world driven by new technology, would be more competitive and demanding.

The statements read, “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,” Buhari was quoted as saying.

“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 a first degree.

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

Buhari added that Nigerian youths are to be guided and taught history as failure to inculcate this in them will make it hard for them to be patriotic, responsible and respectful.

He said whoever does not have a good sense of history will easily make mistakes and since there are no more government jobs, emphasis should now be on skills acquisition and competence in creation and deployment of technology in the country.
