Oyo Guber aspirant pledges to defend teachers’ rights

Oyo State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant, Prof. Adeolu Akande, has promised to defend the rights of teachers, if elected as governor.

He urged government at all levels to ensure the primacy of education in development.

Akande, who spoke in Ibadan, the state capital, on the occasion of the 2017 Teachers Day, said Nigeria should learn from the experience of  developed countries where the remuneration of teachers towers above many other professions.

He said: “An instructive experience was that of Germany where President Angela Merkel recently rebuffed agitations of top public servants for higher wages than what teachers earn, by saying she would not pay them salaries higher than those of the teachers who taught them in school.”
