Governor Bala Mohammed, please empathise with primary school teachers

Sir, when you began disbursing leave grants for state government workers, primary school teachers who constitute the bulk of the state’s civil service population were in high spirits and expected to be included in the disbursement of the leave grant. But, when they heard that they were excluded, they were so unhappy.

Governor Bala Mohammed should know that the primary school teachers are now going through ineffable hardship and vale of tears since they are among the worst hit by the country’s formidable hyperinflation.

It takes me aback how primary teachers are being treated unfairly whenever it comes to implementing some policies that will improve their lives. The important question here is why primary school teachers are now being marginalised with regard to the disbursement of the leave grant?

I strongly call on the governor to help emulate Kebbi State governor, Nasir Idris and that of Akwa Ibom State, Umo Eno by disbursing the leave grant for all categories of workers.

Maryam Muhammad, Azare, Bauchi State
