The laudable project is laid bare by the Registrar of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, Prof Segun Ajiboye in an interview ahead of the commencement of Teacher Naija, a reality television show, the brainchild of Ubaka Enuagwuna.
Ajiboye said the housing scheme is in line with the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to continue to incentivize teachers, adding that already talks are ongoing with developers.
His word: “The federal government has commenced immediate implementation of all those revitalisation components of the approval given by Mr. President which deals with teachers’ careers, 65 years and welfare of teachers and housing for teachers in rural areas. We are talking with some developers who are interested in building low cost houses for teachers in the rural areas. We are looking for opportunities to make sure that we implement all the incentives approved by Mr. President.”
Convener of the show, Enuagwuna said the 20 teachers from different schools will participate in the show with N2m as the star prize.
