Imo Teachers Goes Spiritual For Non-Payment of 3months Salary

The teachers in Imo State have decided to go spiritual in order to receive their three-months salary owed them by the Imo State Government.

The Imo State Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has directed all its members to embark on a one week prayer and fasting over non-payment of their three- months salaries.

In a statement issued by the Secretary of the Union, Godwin Osogwa, on Wednesday July 1, it was stated that the NUT in Imo urged teachers to call on God to touch the hearts of officials of the State Government to do the needful.

The teachers believe that there is a possibility that the spiritual exercise will be the ‘turning point’ for the Government to effect payment of their outstanding salaries.

In a related development, the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has been given a 7-day ultimatum by angry pensioners in the state over non-payment of their four months pension.
