I started school after giving birth to my 3rd child - Governor's wife narrates experience as an illiterate

- The wife of Bauchi governor, Aishatu Mohammed, says she got married at just 16 years old with no formal education

- The First Lady says she only began formal schooling after she had her third child with the governor

- Aishatu, who is now a university graduate, calls for help for young people who are in a similar position as she was when she was young

The First Lady of Bauchi state, Aishatu Mohammed, has narrated how she turned her life around from a stark illiterate who married at 16 years old to a university graduate.

According to her, she was one of 100 girls in her family, all of whom were not given any formal education by their parents.

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

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the wife of Governor Bala Mohammed made the revelations on Saturday, November 9 while attending an event titled “Naija Youth Talk” which was organised by the Bauchi Field Office of the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).

Aishatu said she was challenged by her brothers to get educated and after her third child decided to go to school.

She said: “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."
