Public Schools in Abuja Shut Down as FCT Chapter of Nigerian Union of Teachers Embarks on Strike



School Children

Public schools in the Federal Capital Territory were shut down on Monday morning, as the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) embarked on a strike.

According to The Nation, the union decided to go on strike “due to non-payment of some allowances by government, non implementation of 2013 and 2014 promotion backlog.”

As a result, students were not allowed to enter their respective schools.

    Glo no sms, mms
    Etibaba no customer service agent.

    No GTB for atm

    Let me guess it was the association of Yoruba’s and Hausa staff that decided to frustrate the present administration.

    The way people think in this country is sad.
