NUT read the riot act on states owing salaries.

Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), has given the 19 states governors that are owing teachers several months of salary to pay up within the next 30 days or face an indefinite strike action.

National President of the union, Comrade Michael Alogba Olukoya, gave the ultimatum in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, while addressing journalists after the National Executive Council  of the Union.

Olukoya listed the defaulting states as Benue (10 months), Ekiti (6 months), Cross River (6 months owed 1,000 teachers), Kogi (15 months with half salary being paid since 2013), Ondo (5 months), Taraba (4 months), Niger (3 months), Delta (3 months), and Oyo (3 months owed primary and secondary school teachers).

Other states are Abia (5 months), Osun (paying teachers half salary for 23 months), Nasarawa (paying half salary for 18 months to primary school teachers), Plateau (half salary since 2010), Adamawa (4 months), Bayelsa (7 and a half months), Imo (paying 70% monthly salary to primary and secondary school teachers), Kwara (paying by percentage and owing 4 months), Borno (minimum wage yet to be implemented) , and Zamfara (yet to implement national minimum wage).

The NUT President  also lamented that many state governors had failed to be transparent in their agreements with workers’ unions.

He called on the governors to use the next tranche of the  Paris Club Fund  from the Federal Government to upset all the backlog of salary arrears owed their teachers or face total disconnection from them.
