The Anambra State Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), have commended the state Governor, Willie Obiano for his administration’s improved welfare package for teachers in the state despite the current economic crunch in the country, associated with the dreaded coronavirus pandemic.
Addressing members yesterday, at NUT Conference hall Awka, to mark this year 2020 World Teachers Day, with the Theme; Teachers: leading In Crisis: Reimagining The Future; the State chairman of the Union, Comrade Mrs. Chibueze Nonye, observed that the largesse extended to the teachers by the present administration in the state had helped to entrench quality service delivery.
Nonye noted that prompt payment of salaries, promotion of teachers, regular release of the Union statutory checks off dues, employment of more women into teaching profession and the extension of the service years of teachers 1 Primary and secondary schools from 60-65years are part of the development that had endeared Anambra teachers to the Obiano administration.
