Why I Won’t Leave Any Inheritance For My Children — Pres. Buhari

The president of the federal republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, speaks on the reason he would not be leaving his children with an inheritance.

Speaking in Daura, Katsina State, on Wednesday, July 13, the president emphasized the need to impact children intellectually other than material-wise.

Buhari implored parents to inculcate values in their children, respect for constituted authorities, and live a purposeful life through continuous education.

In his words,

I was locked up for more than three years, after leading the country. At that point, I realized 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 their 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 a 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 smaller, nimble, and efficient.

Emphasis should now be on skills acquisition and competence in the 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.”
