Boko Haram: NUT Wants FG to Assist Families of Killed Teachers



The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has asked the Federal Government to assist the families of teachers who were killed by the Boko Haram insurgents in the course of their assignment.
The Borno State Chairman of the association, Alhaji Bulama Abiso, made this appeal while donating relief materials to families of the deceased teachers, who died as a result of insurgency in the North-East.
He suggested that the Federal Government should give N200,000 to each of the 50 families of the deceased for the next three months, reasoning that this would go a long way in easing the hardship of the families.
He added that the North Eastern chapter of the union was planning to also contribute additional N200,000 for three months to ensure all the families benefited.
He stressed that there is the urgent need to assist teachers as most of them were displaced and had no jobs.
