My little advise for the government is to allow classes likeJS3 ss2 and ss3 to resume back and maintain social distances. Atleast,, the proprietors are going to get money and pay their workers through that.

You don't need to insult to pass your point across. You're advising that I sell or hawk pure water which is feasible but highly unlikely for me. But stop insinuating that I'm lazy because I'm a graduate and teach in a private school. You have no idea the stuff I've been through.

I still need assistance though and will key in to your advice. Thanks

That is why I advised friends and people in general to join a profession that will pay you independently on daily basis, irrespective of economic circumstances. Learn how to trade forex and it will pay you for life. The good thing about it is that you will be learning and earning at the same time. Do not give anybody your money to trade and give you 10-30% monthly. Learn the skill by yourself and liberate yourself and family from financial dependence.

I work for those super big institutions and we all got paid..

Full salaries.. March, April and expecting May next week..

Kudos to our godly Chairman and his wife, the Executive Director ..


I am sure the school is about 20 years or more and the owners have built enough reserves, or the owners have other sources of income. No matter the size of the reserves built my a school, the reserves can usually last maximum of 4 months.

Just pray that this lockdown does not last till September as some people have projected.

The end is near

The lockdown will end in the next two weeks

Then schools and churches and mosques and shrines can resume.

Then after that will come the economic meltdown on a large scale

The FG will announce some stringent measure to reduce the spread of the so called deadly virus (lol)

All these are signs of the end times

Give your life to Jesus is not enough
Faith is not enough


You can't keep sinning and thinking Jesus has died for your sins
That's self deception

This generation is going to enter the great tribulations..

Only God knows whom HE will save in the coming bad days

I don't know if those of you teaching in private schools, like my humble self are facing the same difficulties like me too.

Are you getting paid by your employers during this lock down?

Our case is different here, ever since the lock down began we have not been paid even a dime or reached by our employer to know how we are coping during this tough period.

Those of us that understand better how things work, is it proper that way? What are your thoughts on this? Share your experiences too-those of us in private sectors.

@Bold:

Have you sent N4 text or 1 min call to your employer to know how they are faring?

Private school will pay you during lockdown?

Almost impossible, maybe those big schools though.


They are not making money, so they can't pay... This moment must be really hard in private teachers.

Those creative can do private tutoring though and make extra cash instead of staying idle

Is it safe to allow a private tutor who moves from house to house come into your house and mingle with your children? Some families think it is unwise. That is how much this Covid-19 wahala has served to distance people from their means of livelihood. It's really a difficult time for everyone.

Maybe they aren't paying cus second term is over.

some parents are yet to pay for second term self.

Exactly. Some students were sent home because of school fees a week before lockdown with the hope that parents will respond as we were are approaching exam week when all these brouhaha started. So many went away with the money.

I don't subscribe to that school of thought. In a formal employment, employers bear most (not all) of the risks.

If the students are not paying now, what about the huge amounts they paid previously out of which you gave out peanuts as salary?

Salary and compensations should be structured in a way that teachers can get paid even on holidays. Teaching job is not an informal employment.
You arent making much sense sir. Did employer force anyone to accept. peanut pay? Never.

The idea of labelling what has been agreed as peanut after you are in the system is a very senseless one. Do you know how many school owners are struggling financially? if school business was that lucrative, they won't be struggling. Go to the bankers and their marketers to ask how school owners are performing in repayment of loans and you will hear stories.

The reason you're saying this is because the Nigerian government is yet to shut down most of these schools. There are employment laws guiding every sector of the economy. How many of these schools enrol their staff on pension scheme? medical insurance? staff training? leave bonus? How many even comply with the minimum wage? Education is not an informal sector and you just can't run it like a mechanic shop.

The kind of behaviour you're promoting among employers in the private sector is why many employees independent teachers will ALWAYS leave to public schools at the slightest opportunity.

The situation is same for private school owners as it is for the teachers. I should know. My Dad owns a school, we ain't finding it funny, not to mention paying teachers.
Where the money wan come from undecided
Shey all the money una gain from exploiting parents and your own teachers no reach to give small palliatives to your staff ni? Please let's call a spade what it is ; if, as a school owner, you cannot help your workers at this time with a little support, then you don't deserve them. You're nothing but just another slave driver and nothing more. Nigerian teachers have to liberate themselves from these shackles. Thanks to Coronavirus, now they know there's only a minute difference between themselves and that jobless guy or girl next door. A most unfortunate job

Seconded. I am a private school teacher and I haven't seen ₦1 salary since February. Most of these teachers are very lazy indeed. They prefer to sit by the desk teaching the same trash they taught 3 years ago. Rewriting lesson notes and saying the same advice over again.

I started thinking of extra source of income when I discovered what long vacations means to we teachers. I guess that was the warning all along. For me, I only miss my students. I even dey pity my boss sef.

If after this coronavirus, a normal human being didn't do everything to exit private school teaching, then the person is destined for suffering.

Private school owner should be classified as slave driver,with no mercy.

Even without coronavirus, they owe, with this, this is the perfect opportunity to become boss debtor.

Rubbish work

Working in a Private school is an error, u will not be paid ur salary on time, u can't even save and at d end they will feel that they are doing u good because they employ u. After dis Covid 19 issues of a tin am finding my way shapaly.
