Teachers owed three months salaries - Kwara NUT

Date: 2017-10-06

The Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) Thursday decried the deteriorating state of primary and junior secondary school teachers in Kwara state.

The union added that teachers in that category are being owed three months salaries since 2016.

Kwara state chair of NUT said this in Ilorin, the state capital, Musa Abubakar at this year world teachers day.

Comrade Abubakar added that primary school teachers "received salary on percentages for the past one year."

Said he: "Payment of salaries to primary and junior secondary teachers under the management of Universal Basic Education Board has become a thing of conversation to all lovers of education.

"This abysmal situation has raised a lot of fundamental questions as to the fate of education in this country. Despite the intervention by the Federal Government using various financial windows, yet the problems still persist.

"Despite the several calls to the government there is no ray of hope that this problem will be solved, because allocation to local government where primary school teachers is drawn is overloaded and consistently dwindling.

"I therefore call on the state government to please come to our aide by looking for alternative source of paying primary school teachers full salary and other entitlements. Local governments do not have capacity to pay primary school teachers' salaries."
