My father pushed me to study hard – President Buhari’s Daughter, Halima


One of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari, Halima Bana Sherif has revealed that her father told her to study hard because he has nothing to offer than education.


This is contained in the 55-minute documentary put together by the Media and Publicity department of the State House to show the ‘human side’ of Buhari.


The video had ministers, aides of the president, and other members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) talk about Buhari’s management style, reception to counsel and his major strength.


Halima stated that she was lucky to have a realistic father that emphasizes on the importance of education as not many fathers give such advice.


She said ”He came to my mother’s room and he said look, I have nothing. I have nothing for you. And if you want to study, study hard and make it because this is what I have for you- your education.


“So, you better buckle up and study hard. And since then, I still have his image, just standing by the wall and telling us that. And I realised just how lucky I am because in this society that we are in, I wonder how many fathers will tell their children that.


“He is a very realistic father. This is the reality. He is showing us reality. And he always talks to us about the leaders that passed away without leaving anything behind and it didn’t stop their children from making it.”
