Congratulatory Letter to the newly appointed President : Mr Cyril Ramaphosa
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.

STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT OF NAPTOSA ON THE ELECTION OF MR CYRIL RAMAPHOSA AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA
The President of NAPTOSA, Mr Nkosiphendule Ntantala, on behalf of NAPTOSA, congratulates Mr Cyril Ramaphosa on his election as President of the Republic of South Africa.
NAPTOSA is relieved that our country has now finally put the past months of uncertainty and destabilization behind us, said Mr Ntantala. We believe, as many others in South Africa do today, that we are entering a new era of hope and optimism, he said. We are, however, not naïve to think that the road ahead will be without some major challenges.
We wish Mr Ramaphosa strength and wisdom in leading our country into a new future. We trust that he will establish a culture of integrity and good governance where corruption, that has dogged our country for so long, will find no place. May we enter into a period of sustained economic growth, leading to job creation by which especially our youth will benefit, said Mr Ntantala.
As an education trade union, NAPTOSA expects Mr Ramaphosa and his new government to continue the prioritization of education and to ensure that it becomes more effective. As always, the government can be assured of the commitment of the members of NAPTOSA to quality education and professionalism in the execution of their duties, said Mr Ntantala.
“May God protect and guide you, Mr President.
