Teachers finally receive salaries in Owerri
All the teachers in the state were invited to Owerri to collect their long overdue salaries. Wednesday was the turn of the secondary school teachers and those employed under the CGC employment scheme. However, they only received a month’s salary as against the three months salary the governor promised.
According to one of the teachers who spoke to me, they are not happy about this and on the other hand, it is not safe to give the public the impression that they received three months salary at once when they only received one.
A young man employed under the CGC teaching scheme however said they received 7 months out of the 11 months owed them.
