Gbajabiamila wants better deal for Nigerian teachers

The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has called for an improved welfare package for the Nigerian teachers as they join millions of their colleagues globally to mark this year’s World Teachers’ Day.

Speaker Gbajabiamila said with the tremendous task of teaching future leaders, Nigerian teachers deserve the best from governments at all levels as well as other well-meaning Nigerians.

He said the 9th National Assembly would ensure that the welfare of Nigerian teachers is well taken care of through adequate legislation and relevant resolutions.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker said the theme of this year’s World Teachers’ Day, ‘Young Teachers: The Future of the Profession,’ is very apt in view of the growing demands of the teaching profession.

Against the backdrop of decades old cliché that ‘the reward of teachers is in heaven,’ Gbajabiamila said the reward of the Nigerian teachers should begin to manifest here on earth.

The Speaker encouraged young Nigerians to take up teaching as it is the only profession that can mould leaders of tomorrow in different ways.

“Today, I join millions of Nigerians to commemorate this great day, the World Teachers’ Day. I salute the determination, diligence and dedication of the Nigerian teacher. But for the teacher, we all may not have been moulded to become what we have become today.

“I therefore call for concerted efforts to better the lives of the Nigerian teachers. We all have the responsibility to make our teachers happy, and I make bold to say that the 9th National Assembly, especially the House of Representatives, would champion the course of the Nigerian teachers.

“Working closely with the Executive arm of government, I believe in the next four years, we will put more smiles on the faces of the Nigerian teachers.

“May I use this occasion to encourage the Nigerian youth to take up teaching and produce good leaders that will take the country to the promised land,” the Speaker said.

Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!
