Gombe State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Haruna Kamara, has issued an ultimatum of two weeks to the state government to pay all teachers their outstanding salaries.
Kamara, who gave the ultimatum on Monday while addressing the audience during the 2015 World Teachers Day celebration said failure to comply with the pronouncements would lead to the Congress taking critical action to ascertain that all outstanding salaries meant for affected teachers are paid. Hence, he called on members not to relent in doing their legitimate duty effectively.
Also speaking, the State House Assembly Speaker, Alhaji Nasuru Nono, said that in an effort to improve the education sector in the state, the House approved the sum of N11 billion for the payment of outstanding salaries of teachers in the state.
The Speaker was represented by the Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Education, Mohammed Bello, who added that the aim of approving the sum was to ensure that all outstanding salaries that are yet to be paid by the government to teachers are paid.
