The National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission has completed work on the reviewed remuneration package for teachers in basic and secondary schools including provisions for rural posting allowance, science teachers’ allowance and peculiar allowance.

Minister of Education Malam Adamu Adamu who stated this on the occasion of the 2022 World Teachers Day Celebration in Abuja said the payment of the new salaries was awaiting conclusion of consultations with state governments and the National Assembly.

Mallam Adamu explained that to mitigate the current dearth of qualified teachers in the school system, government has commenced the implementation of a teacher conversion programme with ICT training, starting with the Federal Civil Service.

He noted that a number of states had also implemented the scheme.
