In his words: “Teachers are not happy with what they are receiving in Kogi State. For how long are we going to continue like this? Teachers collect peanuts as take-home pay despite the current economic quagmire. This is not fair if our leaders are sincere in handling their employees”
Some Teachers who spoke at the event had complained that they receive less than N 6,000 monthly as salaries, despite their salary grades.
