Abass lauded teachers for the critical roles they play in the mental and behavioral development of their pupils and students.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Tajudeen Abbass has congratulated teachers in Nigeria and all over the world on the occasion of the 2023 World Teachers’ Day.
Abbas, who noted their immeasurable contributions to society, described teachers as destiny molders and life changers.
The Speaker, who is an academic-turned-lawmaker, in a statement by his Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Mr. Musa Krishi, on Thursday in Abuja, also hailed teachers for their critical roles in the mental and behavioral development of their pupils and students.
Noting that teachers, or lecturers not only educate but, also serve as guardians and mentors to the wards in schools at all levels, Abbas urged them to continue to instill discipline and moral standards in pupils and students, which he said serve as an antidote to crimes and other vices in society.
According to him, “This is one reason why all hands must be on deck to ensure that standards in the sector do not fall, so as to ensure that graduates have the academic and moral qualifications to become leaders of tomorrow.”
Speaker Abass further assured teachers of the readiness of the 10th House under his leadership, in assisting the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration towards the development of the education sector in the country.
He equally promised to ensure better welfare for workers in the sector.
