Rivers State Governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has urged teachers in the state to be committed in their responsibilities.
He urged them to meet the challenge of delivering the best to pupils and students in model primary and secondary schools across the state built by his administration.
He also pledged to continue with the free education policy in the state.
Amaechi spoke at the public presentation of the Rivers State Ministry of Education sector strategy plan and the education service charter at the Conference Hall of Port Harcourt Technical and Vocational Centre, Old GRA, with the theme “Enhancing Sustainable Development in Education”.
According to him, training for teachers and their salaries form the bulk of his administration’s education expense. This is in addition to providing a conducive learning environment in model primary and secondary schools across the state.
