According to Amebo Newspaper NG reporter who approached the winners to know how happy they were to receive cheque and houses among their colleagues, Investigation revealed that the above named winners were only packaged with media while the promises made to them has not been fulfilled till the time of filing our reports.

It could be recalled that Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun, on Monday, October 5, 2020 announced the donation of a two-bedroom bungalow to Mr Odegbola Ayodele, a Junior Secondary School (JSS) teacher in Abeokuta Grammar School.

The house, located at the state-owned Princes Court, Abeokuta, was given to Ayodele for emerging as the overall best teacher in the state.

Abiodun announced this while addressing executive members of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), Academic Staff Union Secondary Schools (ASUSS), and the All-Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS), in Abeokuta.

Reports has it that the meeting, held at the Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, was part of activities marking this year’s World Teachers Day.

Aside Ayodele, Mr Adewale Abayomi from Odua Comprehensive High School, Imoru, Ijebu-Ode, who was the best teacher in the senior secondary school category, was given the sum of N2.5 million by the governor.

The beneficiaries are yet to receive neither the house not the cash gift promised by Ogun state government during last year October 5, 2020 World Teacher's Day celebration.
