A ministerial nominee, Adamu Adamu, says he worked for President Muhammadu Buhari between 1994 and 1999 as a speechwriter.
The former minister of education revealed this while responding to questions from members of the senate during the ministerial nominees screening on Wednesday.
Adamu is one of the 13 re-appointed ministers by Buhari.
“I started working as a speech writer to President Buhari in 1994 up till 1999. I later became his unofficial speechwriter until he became president. Now that he is president, I think it is a collective responsibility and it doesn’t affect my job,” he said.
Furthermore, he said while he was the minister of education, he did everything possible to reduce the number of out-of-school children in the nation.
He added that the state governments need to do more in advancing the reduction of out-of-school children.
