16th Dec, 2019 | By Chris Anioji | ||

The Chairman of Abaji Area council, Alhaji Abdurrahman Ajiya, has pledged his commitment to the promotion of education at all levels in his Area Council. This promise was made on the occasion of the 2019 award day of the Association of Primary School Head Teachers of Nigeria (AOPSHON), Federal Capital Territory (FCT) wing, held recently at Teachers House, Gwagwalada.

The Area Council's helmsman who was one of the beneficiaries of the Union's meritorious award of excellence, dedicated the award to the good people of Abaji, describing education as one of his administration's priority projects. He spoke through the Council's Secretary, Honourable Kamal Adamu, Shuaibu and thanked the organizers of the event for the award, reaffirming his promise to take education to the door steps of all Abaji people.

A key feature of the event was the bestowing of posthumous awards to two deceased members of the Union, Mr Okolo Jacob and the former chairman of Abaji branch of the organization, Mohammed Sani Loko. A member of the Union, Mr. A.B Usman in an interview with Abuja Digest Weekly enthused that the AOPSHON awards were designed to appreciate those that distinguished themselves in pursuing the course of the Association or contributed towards the attainment of such feat.
