"If we get our youths, our children from this age, to be part of being responsible for everything that we are doing, then we are going to make good leaders tomorrow."
A new AUN parent, Dr. Emilia Peter Madumere joined first-year students in their maiden community service intervention. Her son enrolled in the Computer Engineering program.
‘Students Serving Society' has become a tradition at AUN. Through it, new students are exposed to the university's host community.
At the August 31 community service, the new students painted a block of the classroom at Wuro Chekke Primary School.
A Consultant Pediatrician with the World Health Organization, Abuja, Dr. Madumere said her motivation to join the students was serving as a way to lead.
"Our children are challenging us and we should be challenged as parents."
She maintained that leadership is not about money. "Leadership is about responsibility."
