The President shared the concern, yesterday, after taking briefs of the activities in the nation’s education sector from the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Dr. MacJohn Nwaobiala, in Abuja.

He said: “The President raised the issue of non-payment of teachers’ salaries in some states. He felt it is something that is very unfair. Do you prefer your people to be ignorant?

“Some teachers have not been paid for six months in some states, some have not been paid for one year. The President felt very concerned about that.”
