“While the contributions of teachers in keeping the society afloat cannot be overemphasized, it’s unfortunately that they are not given their dues”.
“We cannot but ‘solidarize’ with the very profession who have kept the society working, despite poor renumeration and indescribable condition of service in most cases on this auspicious occasion “.
“We know it for a fact that Nigerians students most especially all of us IMCOSA are all products of teachers and we really acknowledge your efforts “.
“You are the one who taught us to dream, who inspired the hope in us and made this life look beautiful for us all”.
“We all know that it is not easy being a teacher and it is surely a challenge to be a wonderful teacher and you are truly a wonderful teacher in every sense and we say thank you for the knowledge impacted in us”.
“We pray that may the God Almighty strengthen you all our teachers to enjoy the fruit of your sacrifices”. Amen).
