The proactive Governor of Borno State Prof Babagana Umara Zulum, visited a school very early in the morning and found only a teacher already at work ahead of other teachers and pupils early as 6:30 in the morning, he was so pleased with the teacher, that he went into his car and gave her a huge sum of money. The kind of money that changes a person’s life forever.
The governor related reason he gave the teacher the money.
“I paid an unscheduled visit to Shehu Sanda Kyarimi 2 Primary School to see how we can improve the infrastructure therein and I met a teacher, Mrs. Obiageri Mazi, an Igbo Christian from Abia State who served for 31 years in the Borno State. Although it was very early, I met none of the teachers and their pupils on ground but only her.
“Her gender, tribe, religion or State of origin does not surprise me but her passion, enthusiasm, dedication, commitment and above all patriotism did suprise me a lot.
“As a Government, we are mightily proud of her!”
