Oba of Lagos canvasses training, re-training of teachers
Rilwan Akiolu said that training and re-training of teachers was important to keep them at par with their counterparts worldwide.
The Lagos monarch said this in a remark during his courtesy visit to the Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris.
More than 21,000 teachers had failed the primary four examinations in Kaduna State recently.
“For instance, this issue of teachers failing examinations in Kaduna, for me, there should be training and retraining of teachers.
“This will make us get the best of them that can compete anywhere with their counterparts,” the royal father said.
Monarch urges Nigerians to pray
Akiolu urged Nigerians to imbibe the culture of genuinely praying for the country as this would help solve a lot of problems in the country.
“My opinion on the government of the day is that we should support them.
“We should be able to commend their good acts and point out the mistakes too, but not in a destructive manner,” he said.
