The Director-General, National Teachers’ Institute (NTI), Professor Musa Maitafsir, has restated the commitment of the institute to the production of quality, better trained and modern-oriented teachers for the country.
Maitafsir stated this in Maiduguri, Borno state at the closing of the training for 250 teachers from Marte, Monguno and Nganzai Local Government Areas of the state.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the Public Relations Officer of the institute, Mr Yusha’u Muhammad.
The teachers were taught “Efficient Record Management and Electronic Documentation.
The director-general commended Rep.
Mohammed Tahir (APC-Monguno/Marte/Nganzai), for sponsoring the training.
Maitafsir said: “The MP has shown commitment to promote teacher education in his constituency, despite the vulnerability of the communities, which were plagued by insurgency.
“I am really overwhelmed to see what I have seen, to hear what I heard and appreciate what is going to be delivered.
He said that the teachers have really benefited from the gesture, which is part of the dividends of democracy in the state.
The director-general therefore urged the teachers to reciprocate the invaluable gesture “in their own ways”.
“The main objective of the training is to reiterate the importance of documentation and record keeping in schools.
“It is also aimed at developing the skills and competency of school teachers to efficiently document and keep records of various documents according to world standard practice,” the statement read in part.
At the end of the training, the 250 teachers got N50,000 each as allowances and 50 of the teachers went home with Laptops.
