TRCN threatens 13 states owing teachers’ salaries

The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN, has threatened to take decisive action against the 13 debtor governors owing their teachers backlog of salaries and other allowances.

TRCN said it was wickedness on the part of the governors not to pay teachers despite the bailouts they had received from the Federal Government.

The Chief Executive and Registrar, TRCN, Prof Segun Ajiboye said this while speaking with newsmen in Ibadan over the welfare packages the council had for the teachers.

Ajiboye said: “It is surprising that after three tranches of bailouts by the federal government to states across the country, no fewer 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.”

While hinting that the sum of N100million has been set aside for teachers’ welfare in the 2018 budget, he said teachers must be appreciated for their contributions to the growth of Nigeria and for their worth.

On competency tests being organised by governors for teachers in their states, Ajiboye maintained that Nigerian teachers were not afraid of competency tests but what the Nigerian Union of Teachers, NUT, was saying was that it would participate in tests organised by the TRCN, the regulatory body empowered to do so.
