Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has congratulated teachers in the state on the occasion of this year’s World Teachers’ Day, restating his administration’s unflinching commitment to their improved welfare and well-being.
Bello in a statement issued on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Onogwu Mohammed extolled teachers for the critical role they played in moulding and building the society through their quality teachings.
According to him, teachers remained the father of all other professions as nobody could attain any height in his or her professional calling without first of all being taught by a teacher.
“Unarguably, teachers are the fathers of all professions! For anyone to be able to read and write, he or she must have been taught by a teacher or many teachers.
“The teaching profession is what gives birth to other professions and professionals.
“No one becomes a lawyer, doctor, engineer, nurse, pilot, architect, builder, journalist, pharmacist etc without a teacher.
“It therefore means that teachers occupy prominent position in the society and as a government, we ever remain committed to improving on the welfare and well-being of this category of workers to enable them give their best.
“Besides our commitment to improving the welfare of teachers, we are also committed to giving face lifts to our educational infrastructures across the state to engender conducive teaching and learning atmosphere for our teeming teachers and students.
“Once again, I congratulate all our teachers for their dedication and commitment to duties”, he said.
