The statement released about his decision read in part: “On Tuesday, July 18, 2023, Hon. Nigeria Henry Mbachu officially resumed as a Secondary School Physics teacher at Igwebuike Grammar School Awka, amidst cheers and extreme excitement…
His alma mater, which he visited on Thursday, June 27, 2023, for an oversight visit, inspired him to write to the Commissioner of Education seeking to be a volunteer Physics teacher in the institution where he began his career as a teacher, a request that garnered admiration from all.”
After securing approval from the Commissioner of Education on July 13, 2023, the lawmaker expressed his gratitude to the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, for the successful recruitment of 5000 teachers, which has positively impacted the state’s educational system.
