“This administration will not joke with salaries and incentives of teachers and other workers because we believe in giving labourers their wages. So, I want to appeal to teachers planning to embark on strike to shelve such plans for the sake of our children, and let us put heads together to address this matter amicably,” said the SUBEB chair.
The executive chairman of the Plateau Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Sunday Amuna, has appealed to primary school teachers to shelve plans to go on strike.
Primary school teachers in some local government areas had planned to go on strike over outstanding salary arrears.
“I received a letter that teachers in Jos South, Langtang South, and many other areas are planning to embark on strike over outstanding salary arrears. It is not the fault of this administration that the salaries of some teachers have not been paid. It is an inherited problem because the former chairmen of these areas left with these monies.
“The turnout of students and teachers is quite impressive, but these are challenges that need urgent attention. There is a shortage of facilities, particularly furniture and other learning materials,” Mr Amuna explained. “But I want to assure the people of Plateau that we will do our best to address these gaps and ensure our children get quality education.”
