Teachers In FCT are to embark on an indefinite Strike Over Payment and Insecurity

The members of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) had threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.

The association is currently on a five-day warning strike which began last week Thursday.

Their aim was to enhanced security in schools and also the clearing of the backlog of arrears of promotional benefits.

Mohammed Bello, the Minister of the FCT, though had a meeting with the Chairman of the Union, Stephen Knabayi.

The minister pledges to pay up the arrear benefits of the teachers before 2021 runs out as an agreement is yet to be reached with the six area council chairmen.

The FCT Chairman revealed that the NUT stands by their action as it is not ready to call off but instead go on an indefinite strike immediately the five-day strike elapsed until their demands are met.

He added that the area council chairmen are yet to contact them. Also, that even if a meeting is arranged, they are in doubt if they would honour it.
