Charity Must Begin At Home - Teachers Protesting Five Years Salary Arrears Counsel Wike

Protesting teachers of primary and secondary schools belonging to tertiary institutions owned by Rivers State have queried the wisdom behind Governor Nyesom Wike’s donation of N500 millon to Sokoto State for a burnt market when he has refused ro pay them their salaries for the past five years.

The teachers, numbering over 250, with placards and banners, said they were from Primary and Secondary Schools in the Rivers State University, the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, and the Ken Saro–Wiwa Polytechnic, Bori. They also added that about ten of their members are dead due to the hardship associated with non payment of their salaries.

The protesting teachers, who were joined by their children and sympathizers from civil society organizations in the state, wondered why Governor Nyesom Wike would give N500 million to the Sokoto State government over a burnt market while refusing to pay them for five years and counting.
