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.
