Secondary school teachers in Ogun State, on Thursday, honoured a former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, with an Education Legend Award.

The teachers, under the platform of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools of Nigeria, ASUSS, Ogun State chapter, commended the former president for his contribution to the education sector.

The event took place at the launch of the association’s multi-million naira secretariat, located along Moshood Abiola Way in Abeokuta in commemoration of the 2012 World Teachers Day.

The President of the union, Tunde Folarin, said that Mr. Obasanjo was chosen because the association believes he has contributed positively to education and has remained the most favoured president.

“In 1999, he gave us National Secondary Education Commission, NASECO” Mr. Folarin said.

Mr. Folarin said the association is grateful to Mr. Obasanjo for his contributions to the education sector.
