Peter Obi’s Call to Celebrate Teachers

Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has issued a statement on World Teachers Day, urging the Federal Government led by Bola Tinubu to shift its focus from celebrating corrupt politicians to appreciating Nigerian teachers.

He emphasized that teachers in the country deserve recognition for their invaluable contributions.

Teachers Over Corrupt Politicians

Obi asserted that teachers should be appreciated far more than politicians who have contributed to the country’s impoverishment.

He highlighted the critical role teachers play in society and their importance in nation-building. According to him, true development cannot occur without the dedication of teachers.

The Role of Teachers in Development

The former Governor of Anambra State emphasized that human capital development, which is fundamental to societal progress, relies heavily on education and the immeasurable efforts of teachers.

He commended teachers for their rigorous work, hard work, patience, and dedication to nurturing students in both academics and character development.

Acknowledging Distinguished Teachers

Obi cited the example of Mr. Akeem Badru, who received the 2023 Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Award, as an illustration of the outstanding work done by Nigerian teachers.

He called on the government to celebrate and honor teachers who have distinguished themselves through their dedication and hard work.

Obi’s Personal Experience with Teachers

Peter Obi reflected on his time in office and acknowledged that his achievements in the education sector would not have been possible without the devotion and commitment of teachers in Anambra State.

He expressed his gratitude to teachers for their role in shaping the future of the state.

A Call for Resilience and Better Education

Obi encouraged teachers to remain steadfast and patient despite the challenges facing the country.

He urged the government to prioritize teachers’ salaries, ensuring timely payments.

He also emphasized the need for a significant overhaul of the education system to address issues such as the large number of out-of-school children.

Investment in Education and Teacher Salaries

The former governor called for a revolution in education, with a focus on reducing the 22 million out-of-school children by investing more in education and hiring additional teachers.

He emphasized the importance of equitable pay for teachers, both in public and private schools.

In conclusion, Peter Obi’s message on World Teachers Day underscores the vital role of teachers in national development and calls for greater recognition and support for their contributions.
