Published

on



The Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to begin the immediate payment of the N30,000 new minimum wage in Nigeria.

NUT noted that with the current economic situation of the country, the new minimum wage would help in salvaging and improve the standard of living of workers in the country.

Mr Titus Amba, National Publicity Secretary of NUT, speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria also stressed the need for compliance with the payment by all state government while noting that some state governors are not ready to comply with the payment of the new minimum wage.

“It is the responsibility of the Federal Government to ensure that every state including local governments comply with the implementation of the new minimum wage.

“Civil servants don’t have any other source of revenue except through salaries. “Hence, the N30,000 new minimum wage should be implemented from the federal level down to the local government level,” Amba said.

He, therefore, appealed to the Federal Government to facilitate the implementation of the new N30,000 minimum wage to all civil servants at federal, state and local governments in the country.

Published

on

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has fired no fewer than 70 staff for alleged certificate forgery.

The approval for the sack of the affected staff was made at NECO’s 17th extra-ordinary meeting of the Governing Board after vetting a report by a verification committee set up by the management.

The decision was part of a statement signed by the Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani in Minna.

The exam body said that the dismissal of the staff was as a result of a report submitted by a committee constituted to verify the certificates of staff by the management of NECO.

“The certificate Verification Committee carried out its assignment diligently by inviting all staff with questionable credentials to appear before it, during which some staff actually attested that their certificates were fake,” the statement said.

“The Committee also contacted the Schools and Institutions the affected staff claimed to have attended and the Schools and Institutions denied having certificated them.”

It added that the sack is the first phase in the series of the on-going staff certificate verification exercise in the Council.
