Oyo teachers lament non-payment of salary arrears

12 December 2012, 16:20

Oyo - More than 1 000 teachers in Oyo State, who were reinstated by the government in September, have expressed concern over the non-payment of their salary arrears.

The teachers, who craved  anonymity, said they could not understand the reason for the delay in the payment of their arrears since July when they were suspended.

The teachers, who were sacked in June for alleged falsification of their age certificates, were reinstated in September after the review of their cases.

Some of the teachers told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Ibadan that they were informed that Gov. Abiola Ajimobi had approved the payment of their five months salary arrears since Dec. 3.

They alleged that some government officials involved in the payment of the arrears  may be responsible for the delay in effecting payment.

They said that the non-payment of their salaries  for five months had affected their families, adding that they could no longer meet the financial needs of their wives and children.

The teachers  appealed to the governor to prevail on officials in charge of the payment to release the money without further delay.

The Commissioner for Education, Mrs Tokunbo Fayokun, confirmed that the governor had approved the payment of the salary arrears owed the teachers.

She referred  the teachers  to the   state  Teaching Service Commission to find out why their salaries  had not been paid.

The Commissioner for Information and Orientation Mr Taiwo Otegbeye, also  told NAN in a telephone interview  that the State Executive Council had approved the payment of the arrears.
