The Adamawa chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has kicked against the move for reversal of the current e-payment for teachers’ salaries in the state.
Comrade Rodney Nathan, the Chairman of the wing stated the union’s stand on the matter on Monday in Yola while speaking with newsmen.
Nathan said that it was regrettable that while the whole world had adopted digital ways of doing things, Adamawa wanted to revert to the analogue system.
According to him, nobody can scrap e-payment of teachers’ salaries in Adamawa.
“We are not happy with the house of assembly’s resolution on e-payment for teachers in the state.
“E-payment was the primary request the NUT put forward to Gov. Mohammed Bindow during his campaign in 2015.
“The first thing he did for teachers was the implementation of this primary request which has brought so many benefits to teachers in the state.
“We wonder why some people will just wake up one day and try to scrap it when the whole world is migrating to the digital system.
“Before the implementation of e-payment, teachers were not benefiting from the 27.5 per cent increment on N18,000 minimum wage.
“I want to assure you that we will do everything within our means to resist such an unpopular policy,” Nathan said. (NAN)
