“Teachers in Kogi earn as low as N6,000” says NUT chairman


The newly elected Chairman of NUT, Kogi State Council, Comrade Joel Salifu, has lamented the poor salaries paid to its members, describing it as very ridiculous.

Joel said this during the inauguration of the new officials and handing over ceremony on Tuesday held at the Union Secretariat in Lokoja. While lamenting that primary school Teachers in Kogi State receive paltry sums in the name of salaries, Joel pleaded with the authorities both at the Federal and State levels responsible for teachers salaries to redress the embarrassing situation.

In his words: “Teachers are not happy with what they are receiving in Kogi State. For how long are we going to continue like this? Teachers collect peanuts as take-home pay despite the current economic quagmire. This is not fair if our leaders are sincere in handling their employees”

Some Teachers who spoke at the event had complained that they receive less than N 6,000 monthly as salaries, despite their salary grades.
