Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has received Lady Mebirim, the teacher who taught him when he was in Primary 3.
In a post on his official Facebook page, Soludo stated that Mebirim took him through nostalgia and reminded him of the need to remain a good boy.
This is as he remembered others who taught him in school and advised that teachers’ reward should not only be in heaven.
He wrote, “I had the rare privilege of hosting my Primary three (3) class teacher today at the Governor’s lodge, Amawbia. Lady (Dr) Mebirim, from Ahiazu Mbaise, taught me at Nigercem Primary School, Nkalagu, in today’s Ebonyi State.
“It is true that the reward of Teachers is in heaven. However, I always tell my friends that it is good to, atleast, give them advance payment here on earth first.
“Mrs. Mebirim took me through nosltagic reminiscence of my days as a Primary 3 pupil. I am glad to have her around, she didn’t forget to remind me of the need to remain a “good boy”.
“In all you do, never forget your Teacher. I remember clearly all my Primary school Teachers; Mr. Aguwa from Mbaise, taught me in Primary one, Mr. Odoh from Izza mgbo taught me in Primary two, of course Mrs. Mebirim from Mbaise taught me in Primary three, Mr. Agu from Udi taught me in Primary four, Mr. Nwaukwa from Ngwa taught me in primary five, then Mr. Chukwulozie from Ihiala taught me in Primary six. My Headmaster was Mr. I. Chineke.
“I cherish these respected persons for their roles in shaping who I have become today. May God bless them immensely.”
