Maltina-Teacher-of-the-Year

The Maltina Teacher of the Year 2016 will be unveiled at a grand ceremony in Lagos on Thursday, October 20th, 2016. The event, organized to celebrate and showcase exceptional teachers and the teaching profession, will be held at the Grand Ball Room, Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The race for the Maltina Teacher of the Year 2016 has sparked huge excitement and expectations from teachers all over the country. After a rigorous screening process, the pool of state champions are now in the final race for who will be named the best teacher in Nigeria for 2016.

The Maltina Teacher of the Year, established to recognise, reward and celebrate exceptional teachers in Nigeria, is an initiative on the platform of the Nigerian Breweries – Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund.

The Fund was established in 1994 by Nigerian Breweries to enable it play a more active role in the development of education in Nigeria. Since then, the Fund has impacted over 20, 000 students across the country. It has constructed and furnished over 280 classrooms, 280 sanitary facilities and libraries in 40 communities across Nigeria. It has also granted scholarships to deserving students and tertiary institutions.

According to Kufre Ekanem, Corporate Affairs Adviser, Nigerian Breweries Plc, “the Education Trust Fund expanded its intervention in education in Nigeria in 2015 to teachers through the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative.

The initiative was hinged on the realisation that teachers seldom get the recognition they deserve in spite of the pivotal role they play in training, coaching and determining the quality of education.” At the end of the long process of collecting, screening and judging of entries, 19 State Champions, 2 runners-up and an overall winner, Mrs Rose Nkemdilim Obi, emerged at a grand ceremony in commemoration of the World Teachers Day.

Like last year, Mr. Kufre Ekanem informed that each State Champion will get a Five Hundred Thousand Naira cash prize (N500, 000.00). The 2nd and 1st runners-up will receive an additional Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N750, 000.00) and 1 Million Naira (N1, 000, 000.00).

The Maltina Teacher of the Year 2016 will get an additional One Million Naira (N1, 000,000.00) instantly plus One Million Naira every year for the next five years, a development training opportunity abroad and a block of 6 classrooms built at the school where he/she teaches.

This November, industry leaders, style connoisseurs, and fashion enthusiasts from across the globe will converge in Lagos, Nigeria for the 4th edition of the GTBank Fashion Weekend. Holding Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th of November 2019 at the GTCentre, Plot 1, Water Corporation Drive, Oniru, the 2-day event will put a spotlight on Africa’s emerging fashion industry whilst showcasing the talent and creativity of indigenous small businesses in the fashion space.

Since 2016, the GTBank Fashion Weekend has been at the forefront of promoting enterprise in Africa’s rapidly growing fashion industry. Over the years, the event has brought together renowned fashion experts and personalities to interact with hundreds of thousands of young Africans passionate about fashion and entrepreneurship. This year, the GTBank Fashion Weekend, which is free to attend, will feature over 30 distinguished fashion leaders, designers, and industry experts, whilst providing more than 130 indigenous small businesses with free stalls to showcase and sell Africa’s finest ensemble of apparel and fashion accessories.

Attendees at the 2019 GTBank Fashion Weekend will be treated to an exciting repertoire of fashion moments, from fashion and entrepreneurial masterclasses facilitated by internationally renowned fashion experts to enthralling runway shows that will present the latest in fashion styles and design trends. There will also be pop-up stands where talented indigenous designers will display their works and interact with some of Africa’s most passionate fashionistas, an Arts & Crafts Village that showcases the beauty and dexterity of traditional African design.

Commenting on the 2019 GTBank Fashion Weekend, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Segun Agbaje, said; “Africa is home to some of the most creative fashion talents on the planet, and we are delighted and proud to provide them with a global platform that connects them to the world. As we work towards the 4th edition of the biggest fashion showcase in Africa, our goal is to not only showcase the wealth of talent, innovation and enterprise that abound in Africa’s fashion space, but to also grow the continent’s contribution to the global fashion industry by empowering budding entrepreneurs at home with everything they need to thrive on the world stage.

He further stated that “At the heart of the GTBank Fashion Weekend is our vision of promoting enterprise in industries where we believe that we can help small businesses grow and dominate. In fashion, as well as in food and the creative industry, we see not just the amazing talents and passion of our people, but how, by championing their entrepreneurial spirit, we can enrich millions of lives, uplift communities and grow our economy.”

GTBank has consistently played a leading role in Africa’s banking industry. The Bank is regarded by industry watchers as one of the best run financial institutions across its subsidiary countries and serves as a role model within the financial service industry due to its bias for world-class corporate governance standards, excellent service quality, and innovation. The Bank is also going beyond the traditional understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility as corporate philanthropy by intervening in key economic sectors through non-profit consumer-focused fairs and capacity building initiatives for small businesses.
