Pay Attention To Teachers’ Welfare, Obi Urges FG

The Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, has called on the Federal Government to pay more attention to teachers’ remuneration and work aggressively to reduce the number of out-of-school children in the country.


Obi while celebrating World Teachers Day, said in a post made via his X handle on Thursday that the foundation of the development of any society is human capital development, which can only be achieved through education and the immeasurable contribution of teachers.


He said, “I would like to celebrate all the teachers in Nigeria today, as the global community marks World Teachers Day.


“The foundation of the development of any society is human capital development, which can only be achieved through education and the immeasurable contribution of teachers. So, there cannot be any true development in a society without the critical input of the educators who are our teachers.”
