NUT vows increased contribution to nation building
The Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) on Monday said it will continue to contribute to the nation’s building.
“I wish to assure you all that as the engines at the heart of our education system, we (the teachers of Nigeria) will continue to strive with dedication and commitment to contribute our quota to the building of our dear nation,” NUT President, Titus Amba, made this known during the 2022 World Teachers Day press briefing held at the Federal Secretariat in Abuja.
Amba thanked the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari for sustaining the President’s Teachers and Schools Excellence Award.
He noted that the award has helped to give hope to teachers and promote the dignity of the teaching profession.
Amba added that “The NUT remains grateful to President Buhari for signing into law the Harmonized Retirement Age for Teachers in Nigeria Bill, which provides for the retirement of teachers on the attainment of 65 years or 40 years of pensionable service, and looks forward to the implementation of the new retirement age and other approvals announced by the Federal Government at the 2020 edition of the World Teachers Day celebration,” he said.
