Teachers Shelve Strike In Five States, Tackle Oshiomhole

Nigeria Union of Teachers has accused Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, of betrayal, saying by his attitude towards teachers, he has been exhibiting bad examples of labour practice and democratic governance.

The union had on June 1, declared what it called a “painful strike” in 11 states, including Edo over the non-payment of the 27.5 per cent Teachers’ Enhanced Salary Scale and N18, 000 Minimum Wage.

But in a statement by the NUT National President, Michael Alogba, the union said it had shelved the strike in Borno, Sokoto, Niger, Benue and Cross River states because the states had responded to the demands of the teachers.

It, however, said the strike would continue in Edo, Ekiti, Ogun, Zamfara, Kogi and Ebonyi states because their governors had comply with their demands.The union, which singled out Oshiomhole for reproach, lamenting that the governor did not respect a resolution to perfect the negotiation on June 11, even after he set up a committee to look into the accounts of both the state and local governments with a view to determining their finances to pay the allowance.
