An educational group, Real Life Mathematics, has rewarded four teachers in the FCT for their dedication to imparting knowledge to their students.
The convener of Real Life Mathematics, Joshua Ibeazor, said the idea for the awards was to motivate and inspire teachers to do more in the FCT.
Ibeazor, a teacher with the Government Junior Secondary School, Wuse Zone 3, said the award would enable the teachers to do more as there was a need for the education sector to move forward in the country.
He said, “We are taught to ensure our students are motivated, but if the teachers are motivated by appreciating them, they will have a feeling to make them do more and put more effort in the job they are doing. It will create creativity and for them to be more serious while on the job.”

Adesola noted that teachers’ welfare was paramount to bringing out the best in them to build strong education framework to train students.
He stressed on the need to value and support teachers in their effort, stating that the government recognises the critical role of education and had initiative programmes to improve education in the FCT.
