Speaking to newsmen during a press conference, the Coordinator, Orange Card, Mr Abiodun Oshodi, said the Teachers Fest was first of its kind in Nigeria and Ogun State, noting that teachers were the most important people on earth.

He noted that during the Teachers Fest, the teachers would be exposed to the new global system of delivering and making learning attractive to their wards/pupils as well as teachers.

He added that it would be of help in delivering value to society, which would also be trained on ICT at enhancing better teaching, adding that the State has done best for teachers in terms of timely payment of their salaries and emoluments.


He said the strategic workshop would provide ample opportunity for master-class training for those interested, noting that it would flag off ICT training for teachers, as well as awards that would attract 10 million Naira grant for career advancement and for continued self-improvement to become the best.
