Lagos NUT Wants State Government To Restore Withheld Allowances

The Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), Lagos State Chapter, has appealed to the state government to restore all allowances paid by the previous administrations in the state.
Making the appeal, the state NUT Chairman, Mr Segun Raheem, who was speaking against the backdrop of some challenges facing teachers in the state, said that government has not done anything specific for teachers.
Otherwise, it has been a situation of allowances being enjoyed before that are being cut off.
Such allowances are; the sport allowances for the physical and health education teachers due to the rigorous work they are subjected to, the duty post allowances for head teachers to run their schools, rural/river-line allowances for those who teach in such areas, mathematics and science allowances, among others.
Raheem said government was making effort to discourage teachers by refusing to pay the outstanding 11.3 per cent of the Teachers Scheme Allowance (TSA).
He alleged that the payment of theses allowances was long overdue, saying that various appeals had been made to the government and all these had proved abortive.
Raheem said that the teachers in the state public schools were being over burdened as there had not been employment of teachers in the state for 12-years. (NAN)
