The President made this revelation, Tuesday while addressing supporters of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) at a presidential campaign rally which took place at August 27 Stadium in Damaturu.

The president encouraged supporters to send their children to school as knowledge is the only legacy that cannot be taken away from them.

He revealed that he was an orphan and spent 9 years in a boarding school because he wanted to get educated in order facilitate his enlistment in the Nigerian Army.

Buhari said: “Make sure you send your children to school and make them understand that whatever you have in this world can be taken away from you except the knowledge you have in your head.

“I was an orphan; I did not know my father. I spent nine years in a boarding school and because of [my] education, I was enlisted into the Nigerian Army.

“I want you to strengthen your faith, try your best to uphold the children and family God has entrusted to you. Do not betray that trust.”
