World Teachers’ Day: LASU VC, Tunji-Bello Celebrates Teachers
The Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University, Professor Ibiyemi Tunji-Bello has joined millions of teachers across the world to celebrate the World Teachers Day.
In a statement made available to Echonews, the vice chancellor said that every 5th of October is a unique day for her and teachers across the world.
According to her, this is a day set aside to celebrate the transformative roles teachers play in the education and life of every human.
“It has been a unique day since 1994 when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) declared 5th October, every year, World’s Teachers Day.
This year, I once again lend my voice to congratulate teachers all over the world, particularly the teachers in the LASU Staff School, the LASU International School, and the Lagos State University, for witnessing this year’s celebration.
Today is your day; one that serves as a reminder of the incredible impacts you are making on the lives of our pupils and students, and the society at large. I celebrate you for finding purpose in giving purpose to our children, setting them up for success as citizens of our world, and inspiring them to fulfill their potential. Even in the face of challenging environments, you give your best every time so that we can have a future worth aspiring for.
I, on behalf of the University Community, thank you for your dedication and commitment to making our university and nation better by nurturing our future. And even though we cannot adequately compensate you for your service, we must continue to seek to better your lot as much as we can. That is a goal our administration remains committed to.
Once again, happy World’s Teachers Day. May your labour never be in vain. Amen,” she said.
