I was 16 years old, a stark illiterate when I married my husband — governor’s wife

Published by on November 10th, 2019.


Mrs Aishatu Mohammed, wife of Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed, said on Saturday that she had no formal education when she married her husband. Mohammed stated this in Bauchi at the occasion of the “Naija Youth Talk”, organised by the Bauchi Field Office of the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).

“I was 16 years old and a stark illiterate when I married my husband.

“We were 100 girls in our family; none went to school; I only started school after my third child,” she said.
She decried the high rate of illiteracy and early marriage among young girls in the state, blaming the situation on parents who believed formal education for the girl-child was a mere waste of resources.
“We were 100 girls in my family, but none of us had formal education; I had never been to primary school in my parent’s house.
“This is because our parents never believed in educating the girl-child; I struggled to go school, but they refused.
“I picked the challenge to be educated from my brothers and after I had my third child, I insisted my husband gets me a home teacher. “That’s how I started and I later went to secondary school. Today I am a graduate of Public Administration from the University of Abuja,” she narrated.
Mrs. Mohammed who emphasised the importance of educating not only the girl-child, but young people in the society, added that such move would curb crimes and social vices in the society. She called on relevant government agencies and organisations to ensure that parents and care-givers were adequately sensitised on the need to allow young boys and girls go to school.
