• Work Hard to become Great-Ladoke Akintola's daughter to Students

    Images 1Students have been advised to focus on their studies to achieve greatness in life.

    This advice was given on Thursday by the daughter of the late Premier of the Western region, Dr. Bimbo Akintola at the 2024 Samuel Ladoke Akintola Memorial lecture and Award Presentation in Ibadan, Nigeria.

    ''You are all students who will become very important people in life, read hard, study hard, and thank God for everything. We really wanted students to be here today because History was taken out of the education curriculum and later returned. History is very important. My children, students, teachers are also very important.

    ''My father, Samuel Ladoket Akintola was a teacher. He was a father who would go miles to see each and every one of us through our education. He excelled, but he was not appreciated. I pray that my children will have such things said about you. May your teachers be blessed,'' Dr. Akintola stated.

  • Govt Should Pay More Attention To Education-Nigerian Teachers


    Teachers in Nigeria have called on the Federal Government to pay more attention to the challenges impeding the delivery of qualitative education in the country.

    The Teachers made this call through the Secretary of the Oyo state wing of the Nigeria Union of Teachers(NUT), Comrade Waheed Olojede in an event to commemorate the World Teachers Day, at the Teachers House, Oluyole Industrial Estate, Ibadan, Nigeria.

    ''Government should give the desired priority  in the funding of education and the prompt payment of Teachers' salaries.The living conditions of a Teacher determines how far a student can go educatonally. An hungry Teacher cannot impart knowledge. Where a Teacher commits  an error, a generation would be ruined''.

    ''This is why more attention should be paid to Teachers' working conditions and welfare. Our schools can longer be referred to as educational institutions, considering the blown off roofs and the sight of students sitting on the bar floor, such an environment is not conducive and encouraging. When the school environment improves, enrollment will also improve. Teachers are retiring and there are no replacements. The time is up for quacks to leave the classrooms. It is only in the teaching profession we have all comers. The young one should be prepared to take over'', Comrade Olojede opined.
