The Teachers Without Blemish Foundation (TWBF), has appealed to government and other major stakeholders in Nigeria to give proper attention to improving the standard of education so as to ensure the development of the nation

The President of the organisation, Mrs Titilayo Fayoriju made the plea yesterday at a road show awareness programme titled: “Teachers are Heroes: They Made Your Job Possible” which took place along the popular Oba Adesida road, around the market axis.

According to her, the road show awareness/walk symbolises the unique roles of teachers in Nigerian society as well as to celebrate the hard work of the dedicated teachers.

Her words:”The  walk was meant to inspire, inform, and engage the teaching workforce to transform the quality of primary and secondary  education for all children regardless of their geographic location,  religion or economic status to realise their full potential.

“it is high time was changed the negative narration around teachers and education. Teachers are innovative heroes who play  timeless role in inspiring students to pursue their passion and to accentuate and heighten their talents”.

Highlighting the  roles of teachers in the society, Fayoriju stated that teaching is believed to be the mother of all profession which must be given it’s proper place in the scheme of things.

While noting that Nigeria has experienced  serious setbacks in the sector, she blamed the causes on government and other educational stakeholders,  saying they have failed to address teaching profession with the right policies and tools for total empowerment.

She pointed out that “if a nation is to develop, proper attention must be given to her education standard.

“We all know the fulcrum of any nation’s development is education. It is also the foundation upon which all other sectors are built.

“If the foundation of Nigeria’s education is faulty and weak and if nothing is done to rebuild it, the hope of our unborn children will not be guaranteed and they will not forgive us for it”, she stated.

She charged the teachers to upgrade themselves in order to be well equipped with modern methodologies of teaching with digital tools instead of the archaic and analog methods they learnt while in school.

Fayoriju also urged teachers to be keen to learn and relearn so as not to make civilisation and advancement a mirage as well as brightening the future of the society.
