Meanwhile, Zaharia Matur Makter the chairperson of the education committee in the Transitional National Legislative Assembly stressed the need to train teachers for quality education in the country.

“If your ultimate aim is quality education, you must train teachers,” Zaharia said.

He said that communities have been pooling resources to pay teachers, adding that without qualified and motivated educators, the nation’s development will suffer.

The campaign also focuses on fostering a supportive environment for teachers by promoting their professional development and career growth and enhancing motivation among teachers.
