Prof. Segun Ajiboye, the Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), has urged state governments across the country to key into the review of welfare packages for teachers already set for implementation by the Federal Government.
Ajiboye stated this while speaking with newsmen on Sunday in Ibadan on the benefits of the new salary scale and other welfare packages for teachers reeled out by President Muhammadu Buhari during the World Teachers’ Day on Oct. 5.
According to him, since education is on the concurrent list, state governments should be ready for the smooth implementation of the new policy.
He said that the new salary scale and other welfare packages for teachers were already being worked out for implementation by the Federal Ministry of Education and the Office of Head of Service of the Federation.
The TRCN boss noted that when fully implemented at both federal and state levels, the best brains would be attracted to the teaching profession, while the experienced ones would also be retained.
