Nigerian Degree ‘Just Sheet of Paper’ – Emir of Zazzau

Nigerian Degree ‘Just Sheet of Paper' – Emir of Zazzau | Daily Report Nigeria

The Emir of Zazzau, Ahmad Bamalli, has compared Nigerian degrees to a mere sheet of paper.

According to him, the country needs leaders that will groom Nigerian youths to be responsible future leaders, pointing out that a “degree is just a sheet of paper.”

The emir disclosed this at a Women Models and Mentors Foundation (WMM) conference.

Bamalli, who preferred entrepreneur to become a scholar, said he was passionate about seeing a woman in the former position.

He said:

What we are lacking today is mentorship. You don’t have to be a professor to mentor people. We should try as much as possible to impact knowledge to those behind us, especially those that require some tutelage and technical know-how.

“Entrepreneurship is very key. I am passionate about it, especially when it is an issue that relates to women.

“I am one of those blessed people that have girls as my children. I have four girls and a boy, so I can say I am a father of girls. We are encouraging young girls to go into entrepreneurship, especially those graduating from Islamic schools.

“We always tell them to combine the two education: western and Islamic education.

“Is not about getting a degree, degree is just a sheet of paper.

“It is not about having multiple degrees. What have you done? What can you do with your hands? That is what matters today, not to be doing things that will not even help you in your own home. We should always try and encourage the young ones, especially women.

“There is no point going to the university to study something that will not be useful to society.”

Meanwhile, Zazzau, also known as the Zaria Emirate, is a traditional state with headquarters in the city of Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria.
