It’s Teachers’ Day! Is there a Teacher You will Forever be Grateful to? Can You be a Teacher?



If you are reading this right now then chances are you have passed through the four walls of a classroom. What this means is that you have been taught by a teacher before. Of course a lot of people talk about how they do not like one particular teacher or the other, and for various reasons ranging from being too strict to being too boring etc.

But no matter how strict your teachers were with you, there would still be some you like so much and would be forever thankful to. In the same vein, even those teachers that you think you did not like then, looking back now, there would be some of them you cannot but be thankful to.

Those who have school students around them or who have kids at home would have noticed already that they are not going to school today. This is part of their own little efforts to appreciate their teachers – even as they would always be too willing to show that kind of appreciation!

So, as we celebrate teachers today, try to think of at least a teacher in your life to which you will be ever grateful, or whom you just love so much, for reasons best known to you. Appreciate the teacher by mentioning their name and the school. And, finally, do you still believe teaching is a noble profession? Can you be a teacher?

FG, ASUU Meeting Over IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock
FG, ASUU Talks On IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock


The meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday ended in a deadlock.

Although some agreements were reached at the meeting, the meeting is set to reconvene on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, by 3.00 pm after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for ASUU to report back on the decision of its NEC.

In a bid to end the strike, the federal government agreed to release N30billion for payment of arrears of earned academic allowance to the university lecturers.

The communiqué issued at the end of the meeting revealed that the release of N20 billion funds for revitalisation of public universities will be payable by the end of January 2021.

On the issue of Earned Academic Allowances(EAA), which had accumulated to N40 billion since November 2019, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) made a commitment to release N30 billion on or before November 6, 2020.

He said the remaining N10 billion would be spread equally over the two tranches to be paid in May 2021 and February 2022, respectively.

The communiqué also revealed that ASUU agreed to take the offer to its members for consideration and revert by Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

The issue of the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) almost stalled the meeting as the federal government asked that IPPIS be allowed to operate in the interim until the test run on UTAS is concluded.

But ASUU insisted on payment of outstanding salaries on the old GIFMIS platform before full implementation of UTAS.
