Salary Increment For Teachers Was Approved By President Muhammadu Buhari

World Teachers Day was celebrated yesterday, 5th October, 2020. In line with the celebration, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the scaling up of teachers salaries nationwide.

This vital information was disclosed by the Minister of Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu while representing the president. The president has signed the document in order to alleviate the financial hardship of teachers.

This Day reported that the president also increased the number of years of service to teachers, from 35 to 40 years nationwide.

Minister of education who represented the president during the celebration stated that, the new salary scale was approved in order to motivate teachers to increase productivity and effectiveness in their professional duties.

This development came at the appropriate time, when teachers salary cannot sustain them, especially those that are married with children. Teachers remain the father of other professions,  they suppose to be rewarded highly but they've been neglected over the years.

But the teachers in Nigeria, will only be happy if the approval is followed by proper implementation in all states of the federation.
