- The Nigerian teacher said he is grateful for the selection, while stressing the need for teachers to build character strength
Jamiu Temitope Aliyu, a Nigerian science teacher from Abuja, has been selected by the European Council for Nuclear Research for the International Teachers Programme in Switzerland.
Aliyu was among 48 honoured teachers selected from 39 countries across six continents of the globe.
He has an inspiring equation titled Equation of Success with the formula: S = Cb * Ci + Gf, where S stands for S = Sustainable Success, Cb = Capacity building for the future we anticipate, Ci = Character infrastructure, and Gf = God factor.
Aliyu explained the equation further, saying it is used to show the fact that teachers need to build on character strengths even though God’s intervention can make anything possible.
He said that he was one of the two Africans from the 39 countries, adding that he believes he has really been helped by God.
He said: “At any point in time when I refer to the universal success equation, it is my belief that Gf is constant. Gf is God factor -S=Cb * Ci + Gf. Every man or woman is a Universe. It is all about the state of mind.
“It was my thought to express my value for capacity building, character and godliness. I realised that my selection was tied to a lot of effort to build capacity as a teacher. Also, I also intended to stress more on character so that we can always find people to help us at any given time.
“Success in this regard is associated with my selection because I went through a lot of essay writing and production of creative videos in my classroom which I submitted before I got selected,."
