World Teachers Day: Omelora salutes teachers for contribution to nation-building

By: Ben Nwoko

The Delta State House of Assembly aspirant for the Oshimili North Constituency on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM),Dr Chuks Okonji (Omelora),has commended teachers in Nigeria for their role in nation-building as they join their counterparts to celebrate World Teachers’ Day 2022.

In a statement released by him, on Thursday in Asaba, the House of Assembly aspirant said that teachers were the bedrock of the development of any nation as no other profession can metamorphose without the input of teachers.

Sir Okonji stressed the importance to contribute to teaching as a society, emphasizing that we invest in teachers as a state.

He said: “Generations owe innovation to teachers because they play a vital role in forming the society. They nurture and shape young minds, keeping them driven in their early exploration of life. They go above and beyond for little or nothing, and they deserve to be celebrated.

“We all need to become a society that contributes to teaching, regardless our discipline. Teachers ought to wear their title with pride, and they deserve support from all quarters. Frankly, we do not have enough of teachers, and this raises the concern of who will teach the next generation”

“So today as we celebrate our teachers, do something special for a teacher you know, reach out to your teachers whom you can find and tell them how special they are. The gift and excitement for them will not be what you bring, but who you have become”

“As you celebrate this day, I congratulate you all our dear teachers and look forward to a more rewarding engagement between the government and teachers in Delta,” Omelora stated.
