The surprise visit took her and her entourage to Nana College where she described teachers as great assets to students being that they empower students to dream, learn and grow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding. She also used the occasion to call for sustainable and living wages for teachers.

She said: “Teachers have helped to shape the future of the students they impact knowledge and have done excellently well over time as they continue to play an important role in the lives of all who pass through their tutelage.

“Therefore, I celebrate all Teachers on this auspicious occasion, as they do all that is necessary to teach the students, becoming role models, mentors and guides for them”.

“I also want to use this day to pay special tributes to my teachers and indeed all teachers across the world, especially those who do great work for insufficient remuneration. It is time that we change the common saying that teachers’ reward is in heaven, which is unfortunate. Their reward should start from here.”
