Shehu Sani, a former senator from Kaduna Central, criticised Nigerian leaders who send their children overseas to study.
Shehu Sani made the jest in a Facebook post on Saturday in response to Dr. Christ Ngige’s daughter graduating from the University of Lagos.
“Dr. Chris Ngige is proud to display his daughter’s UNILAG graduation; other leaders in office will display theirs abroad and preach patriotism to you,” he wrote on Facebook.
Many people considered that the minister of labour and jobs, Dr. Chris Ngige’s decision to let his daughter to study in one of the country’s institutions rather than sending her abroad was a paradigm shift from political leaders’ customary habit of sending their children abroad.
Some Nigerians are of the view that a law should be enacted to compel all political office holders to stop sending their children to school in foreign countries, as well as stop them from going outside the country for medical tourism.
