Lagos state teachers to join strike

Nigeria Union of Teachers, Lagos State branch, on Thursday said it would join the NUT strike to protest against the non-payment of the 27.5 per cent Teachers Salary Scale by some states.
The state NUT chairman, Mr. Samson Idowu, said although public schools in the state were expected to resume on Monday, teachers in the state would not return to classes.

He explained that the protest against the non- payment 27 per cent TSS was too important to be abandoned and that it was in line with the directive of its national body.
Idowu added that since the strike was in line with the directive of the national body of the union, the state body would not flout it.
The NUT chairman, who spoke to journalists on the telephone after an emergency congress of the union, said the action would be indefinite.
Why can't be teachers paid well so that we can be sure of our standard of education? And members of the house of representative are asking for N7 million extra. Are they better than those that mould our children.
It's a pity how things are handled.
