He said: “We cherish what you have done, and as a state, your efforts will not go unrecognized.
“A couple of years ago, another teacher won a similar award and as a government, we gifted her a house; that tradition has been established and you will also get one.
“That will be in addition to the sum of N1 million.
“You have excelled and are now on our radar; we expect that you will do more.
“You will be one of those teachers who will provide leadership for our EDOBEST 2.0.”
Earlier, the awardee, a biology teacher in Asoro Grammar School, Egor Local Government Area of the state, attributed her success to the recent training organised by the Edo State Government.
