I’m going back to school after my husband’s tenure, Says Amina Sambo

Amina SamboHajia Amina Sambo, wife of Vice President Namadi Sambo, on Saturday in Abuja, said she would go back to the classroom to acquire more knowledge after the expiration of her husband’s tenure on May 29.

She also urged Nigerians to pray for the incoming administration of President-elect Muhammadu Buhari.

Mrs. Sambo said she will continue to remain accessible, even though she did not disclose which institution or course of study she intends to pursue.

The vice president’s wife, a graduate of Political Science from the Bayero University, Kano, spoke at a ceremony organised in her honour by the Coalition of Nigerian Muslim Women at the National Mosque, Abuja.

According to the organizers, they were honoring Hajia Amina and the wife of the Federal Capital Territory Minister, Hajia Aisha Mohammed, for their efforts towards uplifting humanity.

CMWIN also hailed them for being pious and not allowing the demands of office to sway them from the right path.

Mrs. Sambo pointed out that there could be times in future when the demands of her academic pursuit would not allow her to honour invitations to public engagements.

“I will like to continue to leave my doors open in case you will call on me. In case I say I am having exams (I am going back to school); so, do not be offended, I might be studying, but be assured that I will always be with you”, Hajia Sambo stated.

She added that all was now set for the inauguration of the first Islamic Library in Nigeria, which is located in Kaduna State, urging the women to strive to donate a book each to the facility.

She commended the Muslims for their support for the current administration, and called on them to extend the same cooperation to the incoming administration of Gen. Buhari.

The vice president’s wife, however, pleaded with the women to forgive any real or imagined shortcomings of the outgoing administration, assuring them of her continued support even as a private citizen.

“I want to assure you that on my part, in my own little way, I will continue to be of service to humanity. I will continue to help the less-privileged in the society, the downtrodden, the physically challenged, and most importantly, to my Deen. Please, always pray for the incoming administration”, she said.
