Governor Babagana Zulum who paid an unscheduled visit to Shehu Sanda Kyarimi 2 Primary School around 6:30am on Friday February 7 to see how the school’s infrastructure can be improved, gifted the only teacher he met on duty N100k and also promoted her.
The level 12 teacher identified as Obiageli Mazi, was promoted to the rank of assistant headmistress by the Borno State Governor as confirmed in a statement released by Shettima Kullima, executive chairman of the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB).
Governor Zulum was reportedly impressed with the commitment of the Abia born teacher who has been teaching for 31 years.
The Governor said;
“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.
“Her gender, tribe, religion or state of origin does not surprise me but her passion, enthusiasm, dedication, commitment and above all patriotism do suprise me a lot.
“As a government, we are mightily proud of her!”
Kullima was also quoted saying;
“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.”
