Any Teacher Who Join NUT Strike Risks Dismissal (Kaduna Govt)

The Kaduna State Government issues warning to the state branch of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) after declaring to go for an indefinite strike over the sack of 21,780 public primary school teachers in the state.

The govt said the action is  illegal, and will not achieve its aim of derailing the education reforms being implemented by the government.

However the State Governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai stated on his twitter handle that the children of the poor are the ones that attend public primary schools in Kaduna. We owe them a decent standard of education, and we shall provide it. Any public school teacher who wishes to join NUT’s indefinite strike risks dismissal from service. We can’t be blackmailed.

Other issues why the Kaduna State NUT branch wants to go on strike include nonpayment of 2015 leave transport grant to 3,338 primary school teachers, as well as 2016 and 2017 leave transport grant to all public school teachers despite deductions at source.

The teachers are also asking for payment of salary arrears of more than 15,000 primary school teachers of one to 12 months from Iune 2015 to July 2016.

The NUT also said the government has failed to pay the salaries to some teachers, while others are under paid. It stressed that the state government has also failed to promote teachers and provide teaching and learning materials to schools among others.
