Elections are on Saturday and I want to share a story that will explain why I am wholeheartedly campaigning for #AtikuObi2019

I attended the American University of Nigeria, Yola. Before you write me off as another rich kid I should let you know I was raised by a single mother.
When my mom wanted to put me in a university, she was too worried to send me abroad at 15 and frankly she couldn’t afford it. She hated the “glorified secondary schools” and she didn’t trust the federal school system.

I stayed at home a year until someone mentioned AUN.
Not only was the school fees cheaper than any foreign option, there was option of payment plans. A lot of middle class students attended my school.

It was the most reasonable, affordable choice for many of us.
