Buhari worried over non-payment of teachers’ salaries

President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, expressed regrets over the non-payment of teachers’ salaries by states, saying it was unfair.

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.

Speaking to State House Correspondents at the end of the meeting, Nwaobiala said that the President frowned at a situation whereby teachers were owed for upward of six months, stressing that states could not have preferred illiteracy to education.

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.”
