The All Nigeria Conference of Principals of Public Schools (ANCOPPS) has raised a grievance regarding the outstanding payment of salaries owed to their members.
Mr. Musa Ibrahim, the national president of ANCOPPS, expressed his dismay over the lack of salary disbursement to teachers and principals during the Buhari administration. He further highlighted the negative impact caused by the stay-at-home period in the South-East, which adversely affected both educators and learners.
He stated, “Under the Buhari administration, teachers, including principals in certain states, faced significant challenges concerning unpaid salaries. Many of our members also fell victim to the insurgency in the North-East, Central, and West regions. This has raised serious concerns about our productivity. Teachers, as a whole, faced hardships, particularly in the South-East, where the stay-at-home period severely hindered the teaching and learning process.”
Furthermore, Ibrahim emphasized the alarming increase in out-of-school children during the Buhari administration, which remains unresolved today.
It is worth noting that the Internally Displaced Camps in the North witnessed a significant influx of children who could not attend school due to terrorism in their respective states.
Ibrahim appealed to the Federal Government to address the grievances raised by ANCOPPS.
