I'm First To Live Up To 70 Years In My Family – Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has revealed that no member of his family ever reached the age of 70. He spoke in Yola at an event to mark his 70th birthday by students of American University of Nigeria Academy and Primary schools, yesterday.

His words: "It is a milestone in my life because nobody in my family has ever lived up to 70 years."

He appreciate all the students for "the surprise of a birthday bash" and reiterated his commitment to continue to support education in the country.

The former vice president pleaded with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to suspend their ongoing warning strike for the sake of Nigerian students.

Happy birthday sir, and congrats for breaking a jinx in your family!
