The promotion was announced by the executive chairman of the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB), Shettima Kullima after his recommendation was approved by the governor.
The class teacher was promoted during an inspection to access public institutions in the state on Friday where Borno Governor Zulum paid an unscheduled visit to Shehu Sanda Kyarimi 2 Primary School around 6:30am to see how the school’s infrastructure could be improved.
The governor discovered that Mazi who is a level 12 teacher was the only one who had resumed for duty while other teachers were not around.
Hitvibz gathered that the teacher, a native of Abia state, who has been teaching for 31 years received a cash gift of N100,000 from the Governor, as he was impressed by her commitment to work.
The governor said;
“Yesterday, as early as 6:30 in the morning, I paid an unscheduled visit to Shehu Sanda Kyarimi 2 Primary School to see how we can improve the infrastructure therein and I met teacher, Mrs. Obliageri 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, ” Zulum said.
”Her gender, tribe, religion or state of origin does not surprise me but her passion, enthusiasm, dedication, commitment and above all patriotism do suprise me a lot. As a government, we are mightily proud of her.”
The governor, however charged SUBEB Chairman to review Obiageli’s position, her qualification (NCE) and recommend her promotion.
“Even though the woman was not a graduate, her 31 years teaching experience and commitment coupled with an executive order by the governor have earned her the promotion,” Kullima was quoted to have said.
