He commended the teachers for the good job they have been doing and also admonished them to be proud of themselves as mentors of the most successful people in the society.

He also said training and retraining of teachers will be done and it will be compulsory for teachers to be certificated before they can teach.

In his welcome address, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mr. Festus Olajide who was represented by Director, Schools, Mr. Obi Olagoke prayed that the efforts of the teachers will not be vain.
