Science teachers get salary increment in Ekiti

The Ekiti State government has said that science teachers in its payroll will, henceforth, be paid 6.25 per cent of their basic salaries as monthly emolument in order "to re-awaken the teaching of science and technology in public secondary schools in the state."

The state governor, Mr Segun Oni, who made the declaration during this year's celebration of World Teachers' Day in Ado-Ekiti, expressed hope that the gesture would boost the morale of science teachers and increase the interest of pupils in science subjects.

He explained that his administration was making the welfare of teachers its priority, as it had paid all the gratuities and pension arrears owed teachers in the state from 1993 till date, noting that teachers' salaries, which were once the last to be paid every month, were now being paid promptly.

According to him, his administration would also commence the implementation of its Unified Public Service Scheme by the beginning of next year to allow teachers in the state have the opportunity of rising to the higher level in the civil service.
