“The South Dayi area remains a citadel in education in the country. This places a greater responsibility on the teachers in the Constituency and District to continue to hold the standards up.”
According to him, the world remembers the importance of teachers and the impact teachers have made to the world we live in.
“In many of our rural communities, teachers are beyond teachers. They have become part of families and taken serious roles in bringing up children in the rural areas.”
The MP recalled that in 1847, Missionaries, invited by the Deiga of the Peki State, entered Peki and introduced Christian Religion and with it came formal Education which spread throughout the Eweland soon after. Matters of education and its progress have therefore become almost indigenous to the South Dayi Disrtict. The Constituency can boast of teachers whose remarkable efforts and inputs have brought tremendous progress in the lives of our people. But for our teachers, where would many of us have been?he asked.
As the World marks “this important day, I wish to specially celebrate teachers in the South Dayi Constituency for your wonderful outputs. You have sacrificed a lot to ensure our school going children receive the very best.”
In appreciating teachers’ efforts, he entreated them to give their all arguing that the moral of society can be held up by teachers. “The rising phenomenon of decadence in our moral lives, requires a great reorientation. We need to get our children on the right paths for a better future.”
