Do you know you can get a brand new car as a teacher in Lagos state? The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reiterated his commitment to foster transformation in the education sector of the state – promising to give car rewards to outstanding teachers across the 20 local government areas and 37 local government development areas in Lagos.
The teachers are supportive of the initiative
Sanwo-Olu made this known while speaking at the inauguration of the Excellence in Child Learning and Education program (EKOEXCEL) – an initiative specially designed for the development of teachers – at the Lagos Television (LTV) premises, Ikeja.
The event had more than 3,000 primary school teachers in attendance to witness the grand occasion. The teachers from different schools had earlier participated in training supervised by the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB). This was geared towards enhancing their teaching skills. The executive governor disclosed that more than 14,000 teachers were slated to benefit from this program. In the long run, no fewer than 500,000 pupils will be positively influenced.

In order to spur teachers to put in the best, Sanwo-Olu stated that the most outstanding headteachers would be identified and rewarded with a car by the state government. In addition to this, the teachers would have access to free medical eye assessment, and medical glasses would be issued to those who need one.
“As a responsible government, we will continue the massive investment in this sector, with the training and retraining of our teachers, making the sector more ICT compliant, exposing our teachers to international best practices as well as ensuring that our schools become a destination for work and learning.
“We have resolved to address these problems through combining innovative technological approach that is scientifically based, with effective training, and empowering our teachers in every local government to strengthen their capacity and deliver quality education to our children.”
