The Nigerian Teachers’ Union has asked Kogi State to restore full payment of salaries and allowances to its members or to face an industrial dispute.

 

NUT National President Thomas Ayodele telephoned Lokoja on Thursday at the union’s annual solemn assembly.

He stated that his members could no longer accept a salary of 20 to 30 per cent they has been paying to them since the beginning of the year.

Ayodele said that the underpayment, the inconsistent percentage of payment and the omissions that have so far characterized the payment of primary school teachers’ salaries must stop immediately.

Ayodele has asked the Ministry of Local Government and all 21 local state governments to make the necessary adjustments and pay the salaries of front-line teachers according to state government guidelines since July 2017.

The union insisted that local governments now maintain payment of teachers’ salaries, stating that the State’s Basic Education Council, which is constitutionally charged with this responsibility, should be allowed to perform its function.

Ayodele also called on the state government to undertake the harmonization of the teachers’ payroll to include all the current cases under review by SUBEB, in collaboration with the office of the head of the department of the State.

While demanding immediate payment of all teachers’ salaries and allowances, the union requested that adequate teaching materials be provided in all schools to improve teaching and learning.

He called on his members to remain calm, as efforts were intensified to resolve the wage problem and other issues with the relevant authorities.
