    According to the National President of the union, Comrade Michael Olukoya, the primary and secondary education sub-sectors in Nigeria requires adequate number of well-trained and experienced teachers to impact knowledge and skills to learners at the foundation level.

    He stated that every education system needs an appropriate quality and quantity of teachers to function properly.
