Newly recruited secondary school teachers by the Kaduna State Government have called on the Kaduna State Teachers Service Board and the state government to expedite action to pay their outstanding salary arrears.

 City & Crime gathered that the teachers who have been anticipating the payment of the arrears threatened that if nothing was done soonest they would stage a protest.

 The teachers said they had done all that was needed as they wrote to the Ministry of Education through the Commissioner for Finance through the Accountant General but to no avail.

 A female teacher said some teachers had from four to 12 months arrears, while others had three or even two months.

 She said, “We were asked in July, 2023, to write to the Chairman of the Kaduna State Teachers Service Board, which we did, but up till now nothing positive has come out. We are tired of the delay, and those responsible for it should fear God and release our money.”

 Contacted, the Chairman of the board, Adamu Makadi, assured the teachers that the arrears would be paid soon.

 He attributed the problems encountered by some of the teachers to submission of wrong BVNs, as well as account numbers, saying the board and the authorities concerned, including the governor, were doing everything possible to ensure that those affected got paid as soon as possible.
