In the Month of March, the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Education ordered the closure of schools across the country in a bid to effectively contain the spread of corona virus.
It is roughly two months since private school teachers have been at home with nothing doing and majority didn’t receive March salary.
Despite the low pay, private school teachers use their salary for sustenance but this is not so since the outbreak of corona virus in the country.
Aggrieved private school teachers have aired their displeasure over the lockdown that has brought untold hardship to them and urge the Federal Government to consider reopening of schools so they can sustain and survive.
It should be noted that in the last Presidential broadcast, President Muhamadu Buhari reiterated that schools remain close so as to prevent person-to-person contact in a bid to contain the spread of the pandemic.
However, most Government workers go to work, while others work from home and they all receive salary. But this is not the case for private school teachers as there’s no means of receiving salary as far as the lockdown continues.
