Family (Father & Mother)

Let’s continue with Atiku Abubakar biography by talking about his parents.

Atiku Abubakar was born on 25 November 1946 in Jada, in the British Cameroons (which is now part of Nigeria).

He was the only child of his parents – his father, Garba Abubakar, was a Fulani trader and farmer and his mother was Aisha Kande.

Atiku’s namesake is his paternal grandfather, Atiku Abdulqadir, who hails from Wurno in Sokoto State and migrated to the village of Kojoli at Jada.

Meanwhile, Inuwa Dutse from Dutse in Jigawa State also moved to Jada, Adamawa State.

Tragically, Atiku’s father died by drowning when crossing a river to Toungo in 1957.

Education Background

Atiku Abubakar’s father was initially opposed to Western education for his son, but his primary schooling eventually began in 1960 at the Jada Primary School, Adamawa.

After graduating from secondary school with a grade three in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, he studied briefly at the Nigeria Police College in Kaduna before becoming a Tax Officer and then enrolling in the School of Hygiene in Kano where he graduated with a Diploma.

He followed this with a Law Diploma from Ahmadu Bello University Institute of Administration and was later employed by the Nigerian Customs Service during the civil war.

In 2021, Atiku Abubakar completed and passed his Master’s degree in International Relations from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

Wives & Children

There is no way I will omit his wives and kids in this Atiku Abubakar biography. So let’s take a look at them.

Atiku Abubakar is currently married to four wives and has twenty-eight children.

He explained that he wanted to lessen the loneliness he had experienced as a child due to not having any siblings.

For this reason, he married more than one wife so his children wouldn’t feel the same way.

Lastly was his union with Fatima Shettima in 1986 who gave birth to Amina (Meena), Mohammed, and twins Ahmed / Shehu, Zainab / Aisha, and Hafsat.

Recently on Tuesday 1 February 2022, it was confirmed that Jennifer Douglas had divorced Atiku citing disagreements over her stay in the United Kingdom as an explanation amidst other long-standing conflicts between them.

His collection includes a Mercedes S550, Lexus 570, Toyota Land Cruiser, and a Range Rover.

As former Vice-President of Nigeria for 10 years and a long-time Presidential candidate, Atiku has amassed a fleet of cars for security and other uses.

Many people continue to gift cars to him to this day.

List Of Atiku Abubakar Companies

The former Vice President of Nigeria has a number of companies, enterprises, and investments.

He began his foray into business when he started investing in real estate back in 1974 — obtaining loans to purchase and build houses for rent.

Moving into agriculture, Abubakar bought 2,500 hectares of land near Yola to start a maize and cotton farm, though the operation later failed.

From there, he moved into trading rice, flour and sugar before partnering with Gabrielle Volpi to create the company NICOTES — which would eventually become Intels Nigeria Limited.

Additionally, Abubakar owns Adama Beverages Limited (a beverage manufacturing plant), an animal feed factory and is involved in the American University of Nigeria.

While Abubakar has been known at times to conflict with government rules concerning his involvement in certain business activities while serving as Deputy Director of Customs Service, he maintains that he was never in control of day-to-day operations due to only owning shares.

Atiku Abubakar Private Jet

Atiku Abubakar is known to own a luxury Embraer Phenom 100 Jet which is estimated to be worth around $4.1 million (N1, 563, 330, 000).

This adds to his collection of cars and makes up a part of his private jet fleet.

Even though Atiku has been Vice President for 10 years and may have more wealth associated with his financial position than Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was only the Governor of Lagos state, reports suggest that Tinubu’s net worth could be greater due to the fact that he has fewer dependents than Abubakar who has four wives and 28 children.

Nevertheless, both political and business figures are incredibly wealthy in all senses of the term.

Atiku Abubakar House

The Nigerian politician, Atiku Abubakar is known to own a number of homes throughout Nigeria and abroad. He has residences in Abuja, Adamawa, Lagos, and even Dubai. Whenever he’s in the country, he can be found staying in one of his many houses.
