Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has pledged to give 20 cars to deserving teachers across the six education districts in the state.
Sanwo-Olu made the promise on Wednesday during the virtual training of the teachers tagged ”Eko Educators Webinar Performance Series 3.3”, according to PMNews.
He said that his administration was committed to rewarding excellent service delivery in Lagos State Post-Primary Teaching Service.
According to him, teachers are key change agents who will be remembered for shaping future generation of leaders.
He urged them to embrace technology in improving the quality of teaching to enhance their productivity.
”This is the era of technology and it is working well for us. Technology has become a very strong tool that we cannot do away with in our everyday lives. With technology, we can think locally and act globally,” Sanwo-Olu said.
The governor said that great teachers were always remembered for the lives they shaped, just as they derived satisfaction in seeing their students become role models and future leaders.
On her part, the Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, said that any school system thrived on the quality of teaching and learning which was exhibited through the quality of teachers with a multiplier effect on the students.
Adefisayo commended Lagos State teachers for indulging in self-development to complement the government organised training.
