As part of his contribution to enhance quality education in his constituency, Nigeria’s Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has gifted laptops to 77 school teachers in Surulere, Lagos State.
Gbajabiamila while presenting the laptop to the teachers on Tuesday, said he did that in appreciation of their efforts in bringing up the nation’s future leaders.
He explained that teachers were career builders who impacted knowledge in the coming generations.
“Without teachers, we will not have doctors, lawyers, accountants, presidents among many other professions in the country.
“Therefore, we have decided to appreciate and honour our teachers this time around with the presentation of laptops to them. The last time we presented laptops to students, the teachers complained that it was only the students that we gave items. They said that they were the ones who taught the students, therefore, they needed to be appreciated too.
“We have come to show our appreciation and gratitude for inculcating quality virtues in our children. This is done so that it will not look like we are giving out the laptops to our own favourite people,” he said.
