NUT directs teachers to shun pension scheme enrollment in Edo

The Edo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has directed its members to shun enrollment into the state government’s contributory pension scheme.

Daily Trust reports that the directive is coming ahead of the January 18 resumption date by public and private primary and post-primary schools for a second term for the 2021 academic session.

A statement signed by the union’s Assistant General Secretary, Moni Mike Modesty Itua, said the directive would remain in force until the union directed otherwise.

According to him, the decision of public schools not to enrol into the contributory pension scheme was as a result of the resolution of the State Wing Executive Council (SWEC) of the union at its last meeting held on December 29, 2020.

The union had on December 29 issued a 21-day strike notice to the state government over alleged failure to meet its demands bothering on poor conditions of service and non-payment of outstanding financial entitlements among others.

“Following the resolutions of the State Wing Executive Council (SWEC) of the union at its last meeting held on the 29th of December, 2020, especially on the issue of Contributory Pension Scheme for Primary School Teachers in Edo State, I have been directed to inform all SWEC members, school heads and primary schools teachers in the state not to fill any document having to do with contributory pension scheme until the union directs otherwise,” the statement read.

He said the directive became inevitable as the two issues regarding the scheme raised by the union as per the CPS had not received government’s positive response.
