Unpaid Salaries: Schools In Bayelsa Remain Shut After 7 Months

Public primary and secondary schools in Bayelsa have yet to resume for the 2016/2017 session because of the failure of the state government to settle the seven months salary arrears of teachers.

The teachers embarked on a strike at the end of the 2015/2016 long vacation which ended in the first week of September.

The Bayelsa chapter of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) in a statement on Monday advised teachers to stay at home till their demands were met.

The union said the industrial action became inevitable after the expiration of its 21-day ultimatum to the government on Sept. 19. How sad!
