He further noted that the visit was also to register the Committee’s readiness to work with and support TRCN in her moves towards restoring the pride of the teaching profession nationwide.

In his words, “In the past years, the nation’s education sector had remained a victim of quacks and actors. Dr. Odunayo stressed that the acceptance of TRCN’s activities worldwide was a commendable feat that should be sustained. He stated further that the Committee was ready to partner with TRCN in the area of training and re-training of teachers across the country.

Prof. J. O. Ajiboye, said the Council was willing to work with TRCN to conduct capacity building workshops for teacher-librarians and staff of school libraries across the country.

According to him, “LRCN conducted a survey of 257 school libraries within the Federal Capital Territory and the outcome was worrisome.” The survey, he noted, revealed that due to inadequate skills, some educational materials donated to libraries were either abandoned or underutilized. Prof. Afolabi however stressed that the place of Libraries in the education sector especially at the basic and post basic levels cannot be over emphasized.

Responding to the LRCN team, Prof. Ajiboye stressed the need for synergy and collaboration between the two agencies of government towards enhancing the quality of education in the country.
