Igbo Teacher Praised By Borno Governor Promoted To Assistant Headmistress After Visiting A School And Found Only Her On Duty ( Full Video)Recently, the executive governor of Borno state, Babagana Zulum paid an unscheduled visit to a primary school in the state and was impressed when he saw that a teacher identified as Obiageli Mazi had reported working as early as 6:30am.
Following the encounter, the executive chairman of the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB), Shettima Kullima announced the promotion of the dedicated teacher to the position of an assistant headmistress after his recommendation was approved by the governor.
The class teacher had reported to duty during an inspection to access public institutions in the state on Friday where Borno Governor Zulum paid an unscheduled visit to Shehu Sanda Kyarimi 2 Primary School around 6:30 am to see how the school’s infrastructure could be improved.
The governor discovered that Mazi who is a level 12 teacher was the only one who had resumed for duty while other teachers were not around.
Mazi who is a native of Abia state has been teaching for 31 years.
The Governor who was impressed by her commitment to work instantly rewarded the class teacher with a cash gift of N100,000.
“Yesterday, as early as 6:30 in the morning, I paid an unscheduled visit to Shehu Sanda Kyarimi 2 Primary School to see how we can improve the infrastructure therein and I met teacher, Mrs. Obliageri Mazi, an Igbo Christian from Abia State who served for 31 years in the Borno state. Although it was very early, I met none of the teachers and their pupils on ground but only her, ” Zulum said.
“Her gender, tribe, religion or state of origin does not surprise me but her passion, enthusiasm, dedication, commitment and above all patriotism do surprise me a lot.
“As a government, we are mightily proud of her!”
Zulum also directed Kullima to review Obiageli’s position, her qualification (NCE) and recommend her promotion.
Subsequently, she was recommended for promotion.
“Even though the woman was not a graduate, her 31 years teaching experience and commitment coupled with an executive order by the governor have earned her the promotion,” Kullima was quoted to have said.
Recall that the governor paid an unscheduled visit to some hospitals in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno in 2019 and did not meet any doctor on duty.
The governor, who was reportedly shocked at the conduct of the doctors, was said to have visited the hospitals around 1am to inspect the condition of patients and the facilities.
He reportedly expressed dissatisfaction at the poor service delivery to the patients he met at the state’s medical facilities.
During his campaign, the governor had said he would not condone indiscipline, especially in the state civil service.
