Jubilant Enugu Teachers Commend Government Mbah over Minimum Wage Payment


The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) wing in Enugu State has sent its sincere appreciation to the state government for demonstrating genuine concern for the well-being of educators in the region, which includes paying elementary school teachers the state minimum salary after a prolonged period of time.


The educators also pointed out that in the roughly nine months since taking office, the governor Peter Mbah administration had complied with four of the five demands the union made of him upon taking office.


“When the current administration came in, we met with them and presented our challenges to the Governor who promised to address them.


“True to his word, the Governor quickly set up a committee to look into the issue and on the 10th of November, they submitted their report in which it was recommended that these teachers be paid.


“On 19th February, 2024, the Governor called the leadership of NUT and conveyed his approval for the full implementation of the minimum wage. When the February salary came in, the teachers were paid as approved and this was greeted with wide jubilation which you saw on social media.

“This administration has demonstrated its commitment to our welfare, thus why should we embark on any protest? Does that make any sense to anyone? What exactly should be the reason for the protest?


“As a union, we have laid down procedures of pressing home our demands and we have judiciously followed them. These approaches are yielding the required results. Calling for outright protest has never been part of it and we won’t promote such.


“The five-point requests we made to the Governor are receiving adequate attention. Four have already been implemented and the fifth one is underway.”


He urged the educators to return the governor’s kindness by giving their best to their work and refusing to serve as willing props for miscreants or any organization looking for quick fame.
