Former first lady Patience Jonathan has encouraged Nigerian students to aspire to become first lady, president, governor, and senator, urging them to prioritise education.
She noted that she wanted them to act as agents of change, innovation, and development.
“You are the future leaders of Nigeria, and how you behave while in this school will determine what you become in the future,” Mrs Jonathan advised.
“My children, I was once in your place, and now I look forward to you being in my place tomorrow. I see among you, the future president of Nigeria, governors, National Assembly members, Senate president, speaker of the House of Representatives, businessmen, and women.”
Mrs Jonathan made the comments on Monday at Ignatius Ajuri University of Education, Port Harcourt, at an event organised by the University of Education Women Association (UEWA).
This was contained in a statement issued on Monday by Wealth Ominabo, former President Goodluck Jonathan’s media aide.
