Rivers Gov Accuses Fed. Govt. Of Increasing Teachers’ Salaries Without Consulting States

Governor Nyeson Wike of River State

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused the Federal Government of increasing teachers’ salaries across board without consulting with state governments, thereby creating fresh financial burdens on them.

Governor Wike, who spoke on the new salary scales approved for teachers by the Federal Government, admitted that it was good to give teachers special attention because of their strategic roles in the society, but that such policy should be properly implemented.

He insisted that the pronouncement on a new salary scale for teachers would create crisis for the educational system and wondered why the Federal Government refused to give attention to the clamour of states for a new revenue-sharing formula.

“While it is good to give teachers a new salary scale, it is also important not to politicise such a sensitive issue.”
