No sane society undermines teachers: Lagos Speaker Obasa

The speaker added that the importance of the teaching profession can be more appreciated with an understanding that through it, other professions are born.

At an event to mark the World Teachers Day on Wednesday, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, extolled teachers’ importance, saying no sane society can undermine them.

“I want to congratulate you on this day and to further join you in this celebration of your day. It is good that you have a day to celebrate yourselves,” Mr Obasa remarked at the event which held at Government Senior Girls College, Agege.

“We all know the importance of teachers in a society. In fact, no sane society can undermine teachers.”

He added, “That is why we must all appreciate your roles in our lives. We all have kids and we know what it takes to care for them. That also makes us conscious of what you do for our kids.”

The speaker added that the importance of the teaching profession can be more appreciated with an understanding that through it, other professions are born.

He commended the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) in Lagos for making the state proud and for sustaining the relationship between the body and the government.

He further promised that the government would continue to do its best to meet the welfare of those in the profession, who he described as mentors.

“No amount of commendation can actually pay you for all that you do. We all passed through you growing up. Without you, we won’t be what we are and that is why I pray that God will reward you and your family more than how we appreciate you.”
