The event was held at the Aliyu Musdafa Hall of the University, Naija News reports.
Adesina revealed that Atiku is studying for a Masters’ degree in international relations.
“He loves education and its power to create transformation change.”
“I was joking with him recently and asked why at his age, he had gone back to study for a Masters’ degree in international relations in the UK.
“He told me that he wanted to obtain the degree, so that he could find out why he did the things he did while in government,” Adesina said about Atiku.
Atiku who was born on 25 November 1946 in Jada Adamawa state, is 74 years old. In 2019, he was the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
