Delta primary teachers lament non-payment of salaries

Primary school teachers in Delta State yesterday protested at the state House of Assembly over non-payment of their salaries.

The protesting teachers with placards at the Assembly premises saying: “We want our salaries removed from the councils,” “We are not against the local council autonomy,” “We are tired of staying with the councils.”

The state Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Mr. Titus Okotie and Secretary, Mr. Joe Iyalekhue, told journalists that the present structure relating to the issue of local council autonomy had affected the welfare of the primary school teachers.

According to them, the financial burden of the councils had been enormous, especially in this critical period of struggling to pay their workers and the teachers, contending that the primary school teachers cannot in any way “survive” the situation.

They, however, called for the removal of the teachers’ salary from the councils, and transfer to the state with increased funding by the Federal Government. They also appealed to the Speaker, Mr. Sheriff Oborevwori and members of the Assembly to help channel the process to the appropriate authorities.

Oborevwori assured the protesting teachers that their plight would be looked into, and commended them for their maturity.
