LAGOS TEACHERS ENDORSE SANWO-OLU FOR SECOND TERM, CREDITS GOVERNOR FOR MAKING TEACHING REWARDING ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

6666666666555gg5442166002809653605 The event marking World Teachers’ Day in Lagos State turned into a platform to share testimonies of the positive transformation recorded in the State’s teaching service by the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Teachers cheerfully shared their experiences in the last three years, giving Sanwo-Olu a pass mark in raising the standards of education through investment in infrastructure and capacity building.
At the symposium organised by the Lagos wing of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) at the NUT Pavilion in Ikeja, Lagos teachers unanimously threw their weight behind Sanwo-Olu, endorsing the Governor’s re-election bid.
<p>
Comrade Hassan Akintoye, NUT Lagos chairman, who spoke on behalf of the teachers, said the Sanwo-Olu administration prioritised teachers’ welfare and committed unprecedented investment in education and teaching.
<p>
Akintoye said not only had the teaching environment been made more conducive for teachers, but he noted that there had also been improvement in the performance of pupils in national examinations.
<p>
The NUT chief said the Governor met and fulfilled the majority of the demands of the teachers without any confrontation, thereby limiting the prospect of disagreement between NUT and the Government.
<p>
Lagos, he said, pioneered the creation of the Permanent Secretary/Tutor General position, which is the apex cadre in the teaching career, and designated six slots for teachers across the six Education Districts in the State.
<p>
Akintoye added that Sanwo-Olu’s approval of career harmonisation in teaching service placed thousands of Lagos teachers on grade Level 17 – the highest level. This, he said, made Lagos the pace-setting State in the transformation of the teaching profession.
<p>
He said: “In Lagos, teachers have not had any major demands which the Government has not prioritised. It is only in Lagos teachers are promoted and get salaries of the new grade level before the promotion letters get to them. It is in Lagos that thousands of teachers are on Grade Level 17 when their colleagues in other states are either stagnant at Level 14 or demoted.
<p>
“On the occasion of World Teachers’ Day in Lagos, it is about showing appreciation to the leadership of the State. We are using this opportunity to tell our Governor that we have a large number in the teaching service, and this has never been a burden to the system. Come February 2023, we will mobilise not only ourselves but also our families and relatives to make the election work in your favour.”
<p>
NUT National President, Comrade Audu Titus Amba, sent a note of appreciation to Sanwo-Olu on behalf of Lagos teachers, stressing that Lagos Government had lifted the teaching profession and set enviable standards in the State. Represented by Comrade Titi Adebanjo, NUT National Secretary, Amba said: “In some states, apart from the Governors being afraid to meet with teachers, Sanwo-Olu can walk confidently among teachers because he has raised not only the standards of teaching in Lagos, the Governor has also improved on the welfare package for teachers to make teaching rewarding.” NUT National President, Comrade Audu Titus Amba, sent a note of appreciation to Sanwo-Olu on behalf of Lagos teachers, stressing that Lagos Government had lifted the teaching profession and set enviable standards in the State.

Sanwo-Olu described teachers as “important stakeholders” in moulding behaviour and creating a functional society. He said his administration’s efforts towards boosting teachers’ capacity through capacity building led to over 10,000 teachers benefiting from various initiatives to refresh their teaching skills.
<p>
The Governor said priorities were placed on the career progression of teachers in Lagos, making their promotion an annual exercise while ensuring prompt implementation of benefits and earnings due to them. He said: “Today, I join our resilient and outstanding teachers in celebrating a legacy of excellence, dedication and commitment built on the foundation of a unique profession that involves the promotion of the complex personal development of young minds in preparation for future roles as responsible citizens. No Society can deliver quality education without placing premium value on its teachers. While many only expect the Almighty God to reward teachers, it is our firm resolve that our teachers must receive and enjoy the rewards for their labour, first here on earth and then, later in Heaven. <p>
“As a teacher-friendly Government, we developed various initiatives to enhance teaching and further motivate our teachers. Our commitment to increasing the capacity of our teaching staff is visible through local and international training. Over 10,000 teachers have been exposed to various training programmes to hone and refresh their teaching skills.
<p>
To ensure that we don’t lack teachers in any subjects, we introduced an Exit-Replacement Policy, which ensures prompt recruitment of qualified teachers to replace the ones that retire. This has created employment for over 6, 000 qualified teachers in the last three years.”
<p>
Sanwo-Olu urged teachers to always uphold the ethics of their profession and continue to show an uncommon sense of responsibility and greater commitment to duty.
<p>
He pledged his administration would continue to accord priority to investment in education, while also improving the capacity and welfare of teaching personnel. The Governor said Lagos schools would further become more ICT-compliant, as he promised to expose teachers to international best practices.
<p>
“I urge you not to relent in your effort to impart quality knowledge to our children. You are the diamonds set in gold rings for this noble profession. As partners, we will appreciate your continued commitment and support in achieving an effective and efficient education system for the benefit of our dear citizens,” the Governor said.
<p>
In a show of appreciation, the teachers honoured Sanwo-Olu with an Education-friendly Award.

OBASA CELEBRATES WITH TEACHERS, SAYS NO SANE SOCIETY EXISTS WITHOUT EDUCATORS ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

888655ujlp06009564755970472125 The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Dr) Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, on Wednesday described teachers as the most important professionals in any society.
Speaking at Government Senior Girls College, Agege where he joined other well-meaning Lagosians to celebrate the 2022 edition of the World Teachers Day, Obasa noted that no sane society can undermine the value of those in the profession.
The Speaker added that the importance of teaching can be more appreciated with an understanding that through it, many other professions are born. He commended the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) in Lagos for making the state proud and for sustaining the relationship between the body and the government.
He further promised that the latter would continue to do its best to meet the welfare of those in the profession, who he described as mentors.
"I want to congratulate you on this day and to further join you in this celebration of your day. It is good that you have a day to celebrate yourselves.
"We all know the importance of teachers in a society. In fact, no sane society can undermine teachers.
"That is why we must all appreciate your roles in our lives. We all have kids and we know what it takes to care for them. That also makes us conscious of what you do for our kids.
"No amount of commendation can actually pay you for all that you do. We all passed through you growing up. Without you, we won't be what we are and that is why I pray that God will reward you and your family more than how we appreciate you.
"We appreciate your support always and will always be part of you as our teachers and mentors," Obasa said.
Earlier, the chairman of the NUT in Agege, Gbadamosi KM, thanked the Speaker for always associating with and supporting members of the union.
He also expressed the union's support for the candidacy of the Speaker and others in the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 general election.
"These are your people, the union belongs to you. We support your candidature and those of all candidates of the APC ahead of elections," he said.
