Despite the commissioning of projects almost on a weekly basis by the Rivers state government, teachers in Primary and Secondary Schools in the State-owned tertiary institutions are currently protesting over non-payment of their salaries running into five years.

The protesting teachers, numbering over 250, with placards and banners, alleged that they have lost about ten of their colleagues due to the hardship experienced within the period.

The protesting teachers, who came out with their children, as well as sympathizers from the civil society organizations in the state, said they were from Primary and Secondary Schools in the Rivers State University, the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, and the Ken Saro–Wiwa Polytechnic, Bori.

They queried the Governor’s donation of N500million to the Sokoto state government over a burnt market while refusing to pay them for five years and counting.
