Govt new salary for teachers’ll attract best brains – Don



 The Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, Prof. Segun Ajiboye, on Sunday, urged state governments to key into the new welfare package for schoolteachers, which is about to be implemented by the Federal Government.


Ajiboye said the newly-approved salary scale by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), among other welfare packages for teachers, would attract the best brains to teaching.


He said, “Very recently, President Muhammadu Buhari approved some welfare package for teachers. The approval cuts across new salary structure for teachers, retirement age, allowances, teaching practice allowances for both lecturers and pre-service teachers, bursary awards for education students, rural housing scheme for teachers, etc.



“Presently, the Federal Ministry of Education and the Office of Head of Service of the Federation are working out details on implementation of Mr President’s approvals. While this is going on, it is incumbent on the states to be carried along for a smooth implementation at that level, given the fact that education is on concurrent legislative list.
