Ajiboye who stated this while participating on a guest forum platform of the Oyo State Correspondents’ Chapel at the weekend added that this amount which has been included in the 2018 budget is to appreciate Nigerian Teachers.
The TRCN boss who said Teachers must the appreciated for their contributions to the growth of Nigeria and for their worth frowned at states owing Teachers’ salaries.
While noting that there is no way a Teacher who is not paid and denied of his entitlements will be committed or give his or her best to teaching, Ajiboye charges debtor-governors to ensure that the welfare of Teachers are attended to owing to the critical role of moulding future leaders which they occupy.
On Competency tests being organised by governors for Teachers, Ajiboye maintained that Nigerian Teachers are not afraid of Competency tests saying that the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) has said it will participate in such tests as organised by TRCN which is the regulatory body empowered to do so.
Ajiboye who vowed to revolutionise the Teaching profession said that the council has been contracted by the Kaduna State governor to organise Test for Teachers in its Secondary schools saying the agreement is being finalised.
He however expressed worries and sadness at the kidnap of over 100 pupils in Dapchi, Yobe state by suspected insurgents calling on government to enhance security for teachers and pupils in terror zones.
