The House of Representatives through its Committee on Education has summoned Education Minister Prof. Ansu Sonii to give reason why over 700 supplementary teachers working in Nimba County for the past 10 years have laid down chalks.

A communication to plenary from Representative Prince Tokpah said the teachers laid down their chalks due to the failure of the ministry to regularize their status as trained and qualified instructors.

Rep. Tokpah told plenary that the aggrieved instructors are on go-slow and promised to continue their noncompliance posture until their demands are met by the Minister.

He stressed the need for the House of Representatives to intervene by engaging the aggrieved instructors for them to return to their various schools.

The lawmaker said the decision of the teachers to lay down chalks will undermine the education of students in the county.

He said those supplementary teachers were brought into the educational system to replace teachers who died, and have currently worked for 10 years without salaries.
