    Primary school teachers protest over non payment of salary in Kaduna

    No fewer than 82 primary school teachers from Soba Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Monday protested over non-payment of their four months salaries.

    The protest was carried out at the Ministry of Local Government Affairs in Kaduna by the batch ‘B’ teachers recruited by Kaduna Government in 2018.

    The leader of the protest, Nasir Abubakar, alleged that Soba Local Education Authority had not only stopped their salaries, but also trying to sack them and replace them with others.

    “We have been wrongly accused by the Education Secretary of Soba Local Government of absconding from our duties, but that’s not true. We go to work five times a week, yet our reward is four months of nonpayment of our salaries.

    “We spend not less than N1, 000 daily to our various primary schools at different locations in the local government, but paying us our rights has become a problem.

    “We have followed all due processes to ensure that our money was paid, but the authorities keep referring us from one person to another.

    “We are pleading with the Governor of Kaduna State to investigate and punish anybody found jeopardizing his efforts of sanitizing the educational affairs of the state and the welfare of his teachers,’’ he said..

    One of  the protesters, Muhammed Isah said: “We have families; for four months they have denied us our salary, we are being accused of absconding from our duties wrongly, if they no longer require our services they should pay us our arrears and dismiss us.”

    Another protester, Hajara Umar, said: “I have had accident twice on my way to Soba but I never relented in the discharge of my duties nor absconded.

    “I struggle with my infant child to make sure that l discharge my responsibility as a teacher but four months of nonpayment of salary is what we get as reward.’’

    When contacted the Education Secretary, Malam Aliyu Abdullahi, said that the salaries of the teachers were “put on  hold” as they were allegedly found to have absconded from their places of work.

    He however said that the local council was still investigating and its decision would be revealed later.

    Also speaking, the Director of Administration and Finance of the Ministry, Hassan Junaid, said that the protesters had presented their grievances in writing which was forwarded by the ministry to the Chairman of State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).

    “We are appealing to them to stay calm as we will invite the local government chairman and table all the complaints from his people.

    “We will also invite SUBEB and discuss with them to find solution to this problem,’’ Junaid said.

    IWD: Niger, UNICEF drum support for girl child dev’t

    The Niger state government on Thursday called for support for the girl child to ensure equal opportunity for them.

    Alhaji Abubakar Aliyu, Permanent Secretary of the state Ministry of Education made the call in Minna during a mentoring session organised by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for senior secondary school girls in Minna.

    The mentoring session was part of activities to mark the 2020 International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrated annually on March 8.

    “On this IWD lets make sure women and girls can shape the policies, services and infrastructure that impact on all. Therefore lets support women and girls who are breaking down barriers to create a better world for everyone,” he said.

    Aliyu said that gender equality and women’s rights are fundamental to global progress on peace and security, human rights and sustainable development.

    He advised that the country must re-establish trust in institutions, rebuild global trust solidarity to reap the benefits of diverse perspectives by challenging historic injustices and promoting the rights and dignity of all.

    Earlier, Mr Kolawole Babatunde, the state Programme Coordinator, UNICEF said that nine states; Bauchi, Katsina, Zamfara, Niger, Sokoto, Kebbi, Kano, Yobe and Borno were identified among educationally disadvantaged states in the country, especially in enrollment of the girl child into school.

    Babatunde said that there was need to encourage the girl child education in order to bridge the gap between the girls and their male counterparts.

    Similarly, Hajiya Mariam Usman, UNICEF consultant, said that there was need for women and girls to know their right in the society, hence the IWD celebration.

    Usman urged the students to be focused in school toward attracting positive change to the development of the girl child.

    She said that the IWD was set aside to recognise women and their contributions to the development of the society.

    The UNICEF Consultant said that some of the activities to mark the celebration include advocacy visit to the State Assembly with primary school pupils, mentoring session for senior secondary school girls and dialogue with High Level Women Advocates (HiLWA) in the state.

    She said that this year’s event tagged “Think Equal, Build Smart and Innovative Change” has 10 students each representing 10 schools in Minna.

    Also, Hajiya Hassana Adamu, the state chairperson, HiLWA said that the group was collaborating with UNICEF and the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to promote the girl child education in the state.

    Miss Fatima Sani, one of the participants from Government Day Science College, Minna told Nigeria News Agency that the programme has exposed them to develop self confidence in their academic pursuit.

    Sani said that the programme has made them to understand that the girl child can aspire to be in any profession in life.

    NAN reports that the students were counseled on how to excel in various profession.

    SUBEB Projects : Nasarawa Assembly Committee warns contractors against shoddy job

    The Nasarawa House of Assembly Committee on Education, Science and Technology, has advised contractors handling the construction and renovation of primary schools across the state against substandard work.

    Mr Daniel Oga-Ogazi (APC-Kokona East), chairman of the committee, gave the advise when he led members on an assessment visit to the ongoing construction and renovation of primary schools in Nasarawa South Senatorial district under SUBEB office.

    Oga-Ogazi said that the committee would not leave any stone unturned towards improving on the standard of education in the state.

    He maintained that contractors must deliver on their jobs according to specifications, adding that using substandard materials for construction was unacceptable.

    Oga-Ogazi also frowned at situations where public schools structures were used to run private schools.

    He cited cases of a secondary school principal operating a private school at the structure of Pilot Science Primary School, Agyaragu, while another person was operating a private school at the structure of LGEA Primary School, Doma North.

    He noted that the situation was  unacceptable and would be investigated.

    “We are here on an on-the-spot assessment of the new constructions and renovations of classrooms across the state awarded by the SUBEB office.

    “The visit is not to witch hunt anybody, but to ensure that standard works are done in the interest of our children and for the overall development of the education sector.

    “We will not fail to sanction any contractor that engages in shoddy job to serve as deterrent to others, “he said.

    Oga-Ogazi lauded the contractor handling the construction of three classrooms at LGEA Primary School, Doma West for a job well done.

    However, he observed with dismay a situation where RCM Primary School, Doma with 14 block of classrooms was awarded  another contract instead of moving it to another school that lacks structure.

    Oga-ogazi advised the management of State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to ensure effective supervision of the projects to ensure quality works.

    Nigeria News Agency reports that some of the schools visited include: Pilot Science Primary School, Agyaragu, LGEA Primary School Ichaswa, Church Missionary Society (CMS) Primary School, Agyaragu, RCM Primary School Agyaragu, Kayada Primary School, Lafia, LGEA Primary School Doma West,

    Others are: Andoma Primary School, Doma, RCM Primary School, Doma, Doma North Primary School, Doma and LGEA Primary School Doma North.
