To all the wonderful Teachers spread across the globe, I say HAPPY TEACHERS' DAY to you all! Your efforts in grooming the world is celebrated today every year. I am extremely proud to be part of this celebration.

World Teachers' Day, held annually on October 5th since 1994, commemorates teachers’ organizations worldwide. Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers.
According to UNESCO, World Teachers' Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development.

To all true teachers' and my future 'CELEBUTORS', this is for you.

A Teacher for All Seasons

A teacher is like Spring,
Who nurtures new green sprouts,
Encourages and leads them,
Whenever they have doubts.
A teacher is like Summer,
Whose sunny temperament
Makes studying a pleasure,
Preventing discontent.
A teacher is like Fall,
With methods crisp and clear,
Lessons of bright colors
And a happy atmosphere.
A teacher is like Winter,
While it's snowing hard outside,
Keeping students comfortable,
As a warm and helpful guide.
Teacher, you do all these things,
With a pleasant attitude;
You're a teacher for all seasons,
And you have my gratitude!

Bill to restrict children of office holders from studying abroad?

Very funny! Sometimes, our politicians make us look like we are all illiterates. Where is the place of this bill on our scale of priority of measures to be taken to seriously improve Nigeria's education standards? Or is this not one of those that will end up being trashed in the bin after they have glorified their ineffectiveness once again? How is this a drastic measure? How does it affect the millions of Nigerian children affected with the poor state of education we are facing. Read this.

A bill which seeks to prevent children of public office holders from schooling abroad has passed second reading in the Senate.
The bill, if passed, will restrict children of public office holders from schooling abroad except for specialized courses not offered in any of the country’s educational institutions.
The sponsor of the bill, Senator Mohammed Basheer (PDP Kano) said the country’s education sector is confronted with serious challenges and it has become important for the Senate to adopt drastic measures to rescue the ailing educational system.
The bill was among three bills which passed second reading in the Senate earlier without being debated.
If we look into this, more than three quarters of the Senators have their kids schooling abroad, or about to make a plan to, or  even have completed their studies abroad. And we all know that this will not stop.
The sponsor of the bill noted that “it has become important for the Senate to adopt drastic measures to rescue the ailing educational system.

Sir, this is an unrealistic measure. Please can you do a proper research?
