Mahama's statement on World Teachers Day
Former President John Mahama has underscored the important role teachers’ play in national development.
According to him, teachers are the backbone of the nation’s education system.
He added that teacher’s indelible role, sacrificing and striving for excellence in shaping the lives of future generations cannot be over emphasised.
He has therefore advocated for providing them with the necessary resources, support, and training to enable them to deliver good quality education to the Ghanaian children.
“Teachers are the backbone of our education system, and we must provide them with the resources, tools, support, and training to enable them to deliver good quality education to our children”, Mr. Mahama said in a statement released on Thursday October 5 to commemorate this year’s World Teachers Day.
He assured teachers across the nation of a brighter future under his next administration.
“We also recognize the importance of addressing teachers’ challenges, including the need for better remuneration and improved working conditions. Our pledge to Ghanaian teachers, on page 69 of our People’s Manifesto of 2020, remains true today. Education is a fundamental right, and every child in Ghana deserves equal access to quality education.” he pledged.
