As public primary schools resumed on Monday, in Lagos, after the long holiday, the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) executive chairman, Dr Ganiyu Oluremi Sopeyin, has urged teachers in those schools to rededicate themselves to the service of humanity in the best interest of their pupils and the state in general
This was just as the board chairman urged students who were successful in the state placement test to resume at their schools of posting.
Sopeyin said this in a statement made available to newsmen, while welcoming the teachers and pupils to their various schools after the long holiday.
Dr Sopeyin said that the current administration had already done a lot to improve the standard of public education in the state and would not relent in its efforts to continually provide conducive-learning atmosphere for all public school teachers and pupils to maintain improved performance.
The board chairman, who urged successful students in the state placement test to resume at their schools of posting, stressed that for school children to be successful in life, they must take education very seriously.
He said that the placement lists had been released to tutor generals and permanent secretaries of the six education districts.
“Education is a ladder which one uses to attain success in life, at every stage of one’s life education plays an important role, therefore, our wards must get education,” he said.
Dr Sopeyin, who assured teachers of the continuous support of the current administration for education, urged the teachers to reciprocate government gesture by being productive in the line of their duties.
