🔔FCT Primary And Secondary School Teachers Begin Strike, Despite Marathon Meeting With Minister, Mohammed Bello

Just 48 hours after members of the Nigeria Union of Teachers reject another test by the Kaduna State Government, Primary and secondary school teachers in the Federal capital territory have started a five-day warning strike

According to the FCT Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Stephen Nabayi says a marathon meeting has been held with the Minister, but it has failed to address issues of arrears owed primary school Teachers since 2015

The FCT NUT Chairman says the administration has also failed to address issues of promotion, consequential adjustment of Minimum wage passed into law over two years ago and several other entitlements as enshrined in government’s new policies to encourage Teachers.

Nabayi adds that the rising spate of insecurity within and arround schools in the capital city, where there are no parameter fence is also a reason they have decided to protest for quick fix

He said primary and secondary school teachers in the FCT will begin total and indefinite strike next week at the expiration of the ongoing five days warning strike, should the government remains adamant to their demands.
