The second runner up in the last presidential race and former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has witnessed and celebrated two children of his late aides, who studied under his full scholarship at American University of Nigeria in Adamawa State, Nigeria.
This was disclosed in a tweet of the ex- vice president on Saturday, May 27, 2023.
It reads, “This year’s American University of Nigeria Commencement Ceremony was personal for me. It marked the graduation of the children of my late aides who were on our full scholarship: Ms Chinemenma Emma-Ugoji and Mr Asuku Onukaba from the departments of Law and Software Engineering.”
Miss Chinemenma Emma-Ugoji is the daughter of the Atiku’s media aide, Mr Emmanuel Ugoji —who died in a fatal road accident on August 30, 2021 (2 years ago), while Mr Asuku Onukaba is the son of another deceased special assistant, Dr Onukaba Adinoyo-Ojo, to Atiku.
The duo started to study under scholarship in the founder’s university after the demise of their fathers.
