Education News | Proprietor Urges Federal Government
By Francis Olaniyan
The Proprietor, Victory Group of Schools, Chief Christian Francis Olaniyan, has urged government at all levels to appreciate teachers for the roles they play.
Speaking during the school’s first Teachers’ Day celebration Thursday, last week at Victory Hall, Ikeja, Olaniran described teachers as pillars of development.
“Governments at all levels should appreciate the positive hard work of teachers who are the pillars of our socio-economic development by giving them their dues. The idea of teachers rewarding in heaven should become a thing of the past, “he said.
Olaniran said that the Presidents, Governors, Ministers, Doctors, Lawyers and other leaders achieved the ladders of success through teachers who iimparted knowledge in them.
He said teachers were the most important tools in propelling education, saying any nation that realized this would grow in leaps and bounds.
The proprietor praised the Christian Missionaries who brought the evolution of schools and got people trained to become teachers today.
Other speakers who presented the papers are Venerable (Dr) Sunday Fajemisin and Uchenna Johnson Ezeagwu and former student titled ‘Role of a teacher in Nation Building and the Essence of a Teacher motivations.
