Gov El-Rufa’i, fulfil your promise to primary school teachers

Newly recruited primary school teachers and the old ones in Kaduna State were so happy in  2018 when Governor Nasir El-Rufai promised them good packages to enhance their welfare.

It is more than four years now since the promise was made, but the situation remains unchanged as the governor is yet to redeem his promises. 

This is not expected of a leader who is supposed to fulfil his promises, especially if they are for the good of the state.

It is important for the governor to note that his quest to make the state great again should not be limited to providing infrastructure alone but should also include the welfare of primary school teachers.

Another issue worthy of note is the late payment of primary school teachers’ salaries in the state. This has put so many of them in a difficult situation.  

Many of the teachers are in debt following the non-payment of their salaries.

Given the current economic reality, what an average primary school teacher is collecting cannot even sustain him till the end of the month, talk more of even saving something for the future.

We are, therefore, calling on the governor to take measures immediately to fulfill the promises he made. This will surely leave a lasting legacy in the educational development of the state.

We also appeal to the governor to ensure that the salaries of primary school teachers are paid on time just like other civil servants in the state.

Similarly, having done well in other sectors in the state, the governor should also do well for  the primary schools by providing them with latest and sufficient learning materials to aid learning.

We believe when these are done the state would witness major improvement in the education sector which is the engine room for development.
