Enugu teachers under the Post Primary Schools Management Board (PPSMB) have promised to reward Governor Ifeanyi Enugu of State with their voters in the 2023 general elections for his “good work”.

They pledged when they converged on the Government House, Enugu, to celebrate and appreciate Mr Ugwuanyi for the “exceptional attention” his administration paid to their wellbeing and education sector.

They stressed that Mr Ugwuanyi’s administration had been regular in the payment of their salaries and had carried out various reforms in education that repositioned the sector and earned Enugu State laurels in the country and beyond.

The teachers expressed delight at the governor’s achievements in education and other sectors across the state, notwithstanding the state’s lean resources and the country’s challenges since he assumed office.

They, therefore, passed a vote of confidence in him and assured him of their support and votes at the polls to represent Enugu North Senatorial District in the National Assembly in 2023.

The teachers, led by the new chairman of the PPSMB, Favour Ugwuanyi, told the governor that they were behind the choice of Peter Mbah as the governorship candidate of the PDP in the 2023 general elections.

They assured voting for Mr Mbah, his running mate, Ifeanyi Ossai and all other PDP candidates in the state.

Appreciating Mr Ugwuanyi for reconstituting the PPSMB and bringing in intellectuals with proven track records, the principals and teachers disclosed that the positive impact was already being witnessed in the state’s education sector.

The chairman, Enugu State Association of Nigerian Conference of Principals of Schools (ANCOPS), Robert Okolie, maintained that Mr Ugwuanyi’s investment in education made the state come first in WAEC 2021in Nigeria.

The ANCOPS chairman thanked him for his commitment to quality education and the teachers’ wellbeing.

The PPSMB Head of Central Registry, Joy Agbara, stated that the governor’s good works in the education sector were enormous.

She pointed out that they included converting 1,000 volunteer teachers to permanent staff, payment of inherited promotion arrears, and recruiting 1,000 teachers.

Others, according to her, are the renovation and construction of classroom blocks and provision of modern learning tools such as computers, laboratory equipment as well as instructional materials.
