NGOZI June 18th (ABP) – The Special Coalition of Teachers’ Unions for National Solidarity (COSSESONA) commends the commitment of the President of the Republic of Burundi to collaborate with various social partners in the workplace to improve the living conditions of workers.
This is Victor Ndabaniwe’s statement during Wednesday’s press briefing in Ngozi. At the end of the meeting which was intended to assess the first year of the power of the President of the Republic in the field of education, the chairman of COSSESSONA indicated that even if the beginning is not always easy, the President of the Republic has displayed a good will to contribute to the development of the people in general and teachers in particular.
He is a good leader who wants to promote development in all areas. According to Ndabaniwe, President Ndayishimiye is an official who aims to promote national reconstruction and patriotism.
COSSESSONA intends to involve the government of Burundi in the setting up and implementation of projects of common interest. It is in that logic that it will continue the teacher housing policy known as turnkey houses and the granting of loans to teachers.
It also intends to increase the capacity building of teachers for a revival of production and a visible contribution to economic growth and social stability.
Mr. Ndabaniwe also praised the meeting of the Head of State with workers’ organizations on the eve of the celebration of Labor Day on May 1, 2021.
This testifies to the will to walk together for the development of the country, as testified by the slogan of the President of the Republic “All together we can”.
Finally, COSSESSONA is delighted with the efforts of the President of the Republic to fight against corruption and other economic embezzlements, social injustice, poverty, to name but a few.
