As the teachers in the State joined their colleagues all over the Country
to celebrate their day, the Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has commended
them for their unbridled commitment and their avowed patriotism and said
that he would continue to appreciate them as governor and even when he must
have also left as governor.
The governor remarked that the teachers in the State have always exhibited
high level of selflessness in the discharge of their primary assignment and in the way they handle students and pupils entrusted into their cares. He
also commended the leadership of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) in the
State for their dedication.
He noted that the remarkable performances of students from the State in public exams could only be seen as the outcome of the hardwork of the
teachers in the State and added that as they care for the students, God
would also care for them and their families.
The governor explained that the free education programme in the State would
not have had the huge success it has recorded without the wonderful
contributions of the teachers and noted that the success story of the free
education policy of the State Government would not be complete without the
noble role played by the teachers being mentioned.
The governor assured that he would continue to hold the teachers in the
State in high esteem and would stop at nothing to see to their welfare and
prayed God to bless all of them abundantly. More photos below….
