The need to retell Baba Ọpẹ's story

Baba Ope is a Mathematics teacher of a school situated at the heart of University of Ibadan.The name of the school is Abadina Secondary school just within the prestigious University of ibadan ,Oyo state.
In the University, there are two secondary schools- Abadina Secondary school and International secondary school. The former is for children of clerks, technicians and other people living around the University while the latter is for children of professors and senior lecturers.
Baba Ope is a conscientious Mathematics teacher who works selflessly and held free evening tutorial for students daily. Some of the children of the professor got curious and peeps into his class which was usually under a tree in front of Abadina Secondary school from time to time. Eight of the professors' children got interested in Baba Ope's Mathematics lectures and decided to join.
They joined the class and attended the lectures for two years after which they all sat for an external examination. Flabbergastingly, all the children that attended Baba Ope's tutorial came out in flying colours, passed Mathematics outstandingly and got admission into various tertiary institution of learning.
After several years, some of the students he taught under the tree, decided to pay Baba Ope a visit. When they got to his abode, they discovered he was aged. He could not even recognise them any longer. They exchanged pleasantries and memorable pounding .
They were shocked to find out that he was living a good and affluent life style even at his old age. A mansion and the latest model of car(Mercedes Benz) at his time.. They gave him a huge some of money as a token of their appreciation.
The implication of this is that, the passionate teacher will be rewarded on earth before they get to heaven and their biological children might not even have to take care of them as the destinies(learners ), they have nurtured will take good care of them.
Teachers should be passionate, zealous and conscious of their doings. The current classroom parades the future leaders , handle them the way you want to be treated after your retirement ..
