NUT Scribe Commends Maltina Teacher Of The Year Initiative
THE Secretary General of Nigeria Union of Teachers, Obong Ikpe Obong has commended the Nigerian Breweries Plc-Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund for instituting the Maltina Teacher of the Year award.
According to the NUT scribe, other corporate bodies should emulate the good example being set by the brewing giant and its corporate principle of ‘winning with Nigeria’.
Ikpe Obong made the charge during a meeting with the representative of the company, Mrs. Emete Tonukari, the CSR/Sustainability Manager of Nigerian Breweries Plc inside the union’s national head office in Abuja.
He said the union was delighted with the calibre of personalities selected by the organisers of the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative to serve on the panel of judges.
“It shows the thoroughness and transparent manner you people went about the selection process,” he said.
He revealed that the union would explore the possibility of featuring NB Plc as a critical stakeholder at the World Teachers Day celebration on October 5, this year, during which the company would be accorded the opportunity, not only to present a goodwill message, but also to exhaustively outline its programme for the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative.
The NUT Secretary General expressed optimism that more teachers would key into the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative in the coming years.
