On behalf of the National Professional Teachers’ Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA), I wish to extend my heartfelt congratulations to you on your appointment as the 5th President of South Africa in the democratic era.
It is with great expectation that we look forward to your tenure as our President. We believe that, with the assistance of a new government, you will be able to reverse the tide of negativity that has gripped our country for so long and to place our economy on a firm footing by which all citizens will benefit. We trust you to instil a culture of integrity and good governance in government and the public service.
Education has always been a priority of government and it will no doubt continue under your watch. As an education trade union we, however, wish to urge you to ensure that our education system becomes more efficient and competitive and that the vast education budget (which we appreciate) is utilised in the most effective way.
Please be assured, Mr President, of NAPTOSA’s commitment to quality education and the building of a professional education workforce.
Best wishes for the challenging task that lies ahead of you.
