Edo Primary School Teachers Reject Resumption Date by chidima2019: 3:50am On Aug 26, 2019
The crisis rocking the primary school education in Edo State was further deepened on Sunday with the rejection of the new resumption date scheduled for September 2, by the State Universal Basic Education Board.

The state branch of the Nigeria Union of Teachers in a statement by its Assistant General Secretary, Mr Moni Itua, asked its members to disregard the call by SUBEB for resumption on September 2 for the first term of 2019/2020 school calendar.



Itua urged the board not to constitute itself into a “parallel ministry of education” as well as usurping the functions of the ministry by ordering a different resumption for primary school teachers in the state.

“In continuation of your board’s insensitivity to the human dignity and plight of our primary school teachers, the attention of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Edo State Wing, has been drawn to your circular letter — SUBEB/A/7VOL.IIT/90 — of August 20, 2019, wherein you directed teachers to resume for the 2019/2020 first term academic session on September 2, 2019 on one hand and in a twist, further directed the same teachers to also resume a week earlier than the pupils (that is, on the 2nd of September, 2019) to enable them put all arrangements in place for effective take-off of teaching/learning process.

“Arising from the above directives by your board, the state wing executive council of NUT wants to inform you that public primary school heads and their teachers are not the ones to clean up classrooms or cut grasses in their school compounds, but shall only act as supervisors to the pupils in executing such assignments on their resumption, if your board lacks the capacity to provide or employ cleaners and gardeners in the schools.

“Your board’s unending shenanigans and arm-twisting of our teachers which are now dovetailing into full scale tramping on their rights should stop henceforth,” he said.

While directing school heads and their teachers to disregard the board’s circular letter regarding the September 2, 2019 resumption date, Itua urged them to adhere strictly to the union’s directives.

It will be recalled that the teachers had last week issued a three-week strike notice to the state government if it failed to meet its demands, including the rejection of competency test for teachers, release of the approved N60m subvention to schools and the payment of EDO BEST stipends of 2018 and 2019 to teachers, among others.

A circular from the human resources department of SUBEB dated August 20, 2019 had directed teaching and non-teaching staff in public schools across the 18 local government education authorities to resume school on Monday, 2nd of September, 2019.

The circular was signed by Mrs Ehigiamusor I.Lydia, director, human resources and management on behalf of the executive chairman of the board, Mrs Joan Oviawe.

It was copied to all education secretaries and local government education authorities across the 18 local government areas.

apart from the oshiomhole versus Obaseki crisis and this UPE versus NUT, which other crisis is in Edo state? Are there any states in Nigeria that there isn't any problem? Some people on this forum like making disparaging comments about what they know nothing about instead of just reading and keeping shut.

The one that caught my attention is, rejection of competency test of teachers. Honestly, if they are competent they won't reject such move na, I served in Edo and I know what those teachers in the village do.

Re: Edo Primary School Teachers Reject Resumption Date by adisabarber(m): 5:00am On Aug 26, 2019
Is it not normal for teachers to resume before students? Teachers are even supposed to go to work during holidays except public holidays and when they are on leave.

Has it ever crossed your mind that maybe the competency test was not duly conducted and probably features the usual nepotism & man-know-man factor that's common in government related affairs?

Don't mind that one he is looking for cheap likes. Nigerian primary and secondary teachers are one of the least paid in the world; he wouldn't talk abt that. So many states in Nigeria are still using blackboard instead of marker board, let me not talk abt laboratory equipment. All they think of is tossing teachers up and down.

Are you saying the union cannot be part of competency test process from start to finish or are they afraid that competency test will reveal their incompetencies ?
