Speaking yesterday during the celebration of the Teachers Day in Ado-Ekiti, the state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, lauded the teachers for their contributions to the improvement noticed in the  2013 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) results in the State .
Fayemi, who was represented by his deputy, Prof Modupe Adelabu, said  Ekiti recorded 52 per cent  in this year’s WAEC results contrary to 20 per cent recorded in 2012.
The governor, who promised more Government’s attentions for teachers in terms of human capital development and remunerations, hinged the upward trend in WAEC results on government’s strides in the renovation of All Schools, distribution of Laptops to students and teachers among other intervention programmes.
He  assured that  his government would continue to work harmoniously with teachers and other  workers in the State for rapid development  in the education sector.
Also, the State Commissioner for Education, Mr Kehinde Ojo, who described education as a critical sector in the state,  advised the teachers  to uphold professionalism and strive hard to put education in its pride  of place in the state.
He urged them to continue to complement Government’s efforts in its bid to rejuvenate the education sector and  put Ekiti on the world map  in the area of education.
The Chairmen of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools(ASUSS), Coms Sola Adigun  and  his counterpart in Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) Samuel Akosile, demanded the payment of the full implementation of the 27.5 per cent Teachers Peculiar Allowance in the State .
