FCT area council teachers refuse to resume, chase pupils away from classrooms 


Teachers employed by the area councils in the Federal Capital Territory, under the aegis of the FCT Council of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, refused to resume work on Monday over non-payment of the national minimum wage.

The teachers‎ said chairmen of the area councils in the territory have refused to pay the national minimum wage, as well as some arrears‎.

‎Pupils who turned up for lessons in some of the Local Education Authority (LEA) primary schools were chased away by the aggrieved teachers. ‎

At the LEA Primary School, Kubwa, which also houses the Junior Secondary School, Kubwa, pupils who arrived the classrooms  as early as 8: 00 am were chased away.

Only students of the Kubwa junior secondary school were allowed in, as secondary school teachers had been paid by the FCT Administration.

It would be recalled that in September, Chairman of the FCT NUT, Stephen Knabayi, had directed members not to resume work whenever schools were reopened.

According to him, while the Federal Capital Territory Administration has commenced the payment of the new minimum wage, the six area councils in the territory who are saddled with the payment of primary school teachers have refused to do so.
