Former Deputy Governor of Ekiti and the PDP candidate in the 2018 governorship election, Professor Kolapo Olusola Eleka, has advocated more incentives for Nigerian Teachers, adding that for Nigeria to match up with her contemporaries in the community of nations, teachers must be adequately encouraged beyond what is obtainable in our educational system.
In a statement signed by Prof. Eleka, on Tuesday, to felicitate with teachers across the world, through his media Aide, Adebisi Adeola, he said teachers deserve more attention and commendations from both the governmental organizations and Non-governmental organizations in Nigeria, giving their unrelenting effort to reshape the future of the country through their contributions to knowledge in nation building.
Eleka, who said teachers were cornerstone of humanity and builders of foundation for all learning, added that government from different levels should expedite actions in grants and other benefits that could motivate them to be effective in their responsibilities.
According to Him: “As a teacher who understands the yearnings and aspirations of his colleagues, I place premium value on teachers. Hence, I want to appreciate all teachers in the world for standing tall in the face of little attention at our various homes, primary schools, secondary schools, vocational trainings centers and tertiary institutions.
“I celebrate with you all, on this special day set aside for you. As you all can recall, during my tenure as Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, together we achieved great feats for our dear state, Ekiti.
"Even, as we look forward to governing the state in 2022, by God's Grace, I want to let you know that you are an integral part of my agenda. Your welfare, growth, rights, development and satisfaction are part of our education SHIELD agenda, in innovatively transforming education for the prosperity of our dear state.
“Together, we will restore the lost glory of education and empower the sector in our dear Ekiti state."
