Buhari's Government Begins Payment Of Teachers’ Withheld Salaries

The affected teachers are the ones who benefited from the elongation of service tenure extended by President Buhari’s administration.

During World Teachers’ Day in 2022, Buhari announced some incentives for teachers, including a new salary scale and raising their retirement age from 60 to 65 years.

However, some of the teachers who benefited from the service elongation had their salaries withheld from 2021 to March 2023.

Speaking with Punch on Sunday, April 23, 2023, top officials of the Federal Ministry of Education, Finance, Budget and National Planning, confirmed that the payment of the withheld salaries has commenced.

The source said, “I can confirm to you that they have started receiving their salaries. They also received the arrears of the peculiar allowances. All arrears of salaries will be paid in full”.

Confirming the development, one of the benefiting teachers in Ilorin the Kwara State capital said, “It is true.

“We have started receiving. Though we only got the one for April 2023, we have been reassured that the arrears will be cleared.”

KanyiDaily recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved a special salary scale for teachers, and also increased the years of service for teachers from 35 to 40 years.
