“Some of my contributions include- employment of over 15 teachers to my free tutorial center, obtaining of Jamb form for students which one of the students was on the list of first top ten in Oyo State, scholarship scheme for tertiary institutions and many more.
“Teachers are one of the most influential and powerful forces for equity and access to quality education and are key to sustainable development goals”, he said.
They give children purpose, set them up for success as citizens of our world, and inspire in them a drive to do well and succeed in life. The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow, and teachers are that critical point that makes a child ready for their future.
