The new development was made known yesterday in Abuja, at a symposium organised by the Ministry of Education, as the symposium was part of the Ministry's activities to mark the forthcoming 2021 World Teachers Day with the theme: "Teachers At The Heart of Education Recovery."
The Minister, which was represented by its Permanent Secretary, Sonny Echono, noted that work was being concluded on the enhanced salary structure, stressing that the ministry is also working on the implementation of other incentives promised by President Buhari during the 2020 World Teacher's Day, ranging from allowances, houses, training and to elongate teachers service year.

In Nigeria, we are tired of hearing how long teachers are being owed salaries in different states and I can boldly describe such act as criminality. Meanwhile the new initiative for Nigerian teachers will improve the economy of the country in the following ways:
1. It will encourage the effectiveness of our teachers, as the zeal to move on in the responsibility of bringing up the future leaders of Nigeria will be boosted.
2. Teachers would get the remuneration they deserve, as the new development would prohibit the delay in paying teachers salaries and will also revitalize the teaching profession in Nigeria.
The Guest Speaker at the event, Professor Josiah Ajibaye, said that the COVID-19 pandemic has abruptly changed the world's education system, especially African countries, stressing that while some continent were able to quickly adjust to the new condition, African countries including Nigeria found it difficult to adjust to a technology based learning as only one third of Nigerians have access to internet facilities, thereby assuring that the TRCN (Teachers Registration Council) would continue to play its role in restructuring the career path of the Nigerian Teachers.
