Teachers Registration Council Nigeria (TRCN) has threatened decisive action against the 13states that are in debt of paying its teacher their unpaid allowances.
According to the TRCN registrar Prof. Segun Ajiboye while discussing with news at the lagos state capital, he said:
“It is surprising that after three tranches of bailouts by the federal government to states across the country, no less than 13 states still owe their teachers.
You can’t get the best from these teachers when you continue to owe them salaries and allowances. Our conclusion on the states owing teachers will be made known soon.”
Prof Ajeboye highlighted that N100million been set aside by budget 2018 to settle teachers in each state but was not completely done in some of the states.
Out of 36 states, prof mentioned that 13 state governors still owe teachers. He hinted that teachers are meant to be appreciated rather than weight them down.
