He revealed that as a primary school teacher he was paid N4000 per month for his services.
Recalling his experience, the teacher shared that she felt embarrassed when the school proprietor handed her the money in front of the students.
The children, who were curious about the cash, started circling her and asking for some of it.
This incident highlights the dire state of teachers salaries in many parts of Nigeria.
Despite being an essential profession, teachers in the country are often grossly underpaid, leading to demotivation and a lack of quality education for students.
The Nigerian government has been urged to take immediate steps to address this issue and ensure that teachers are paid a fair wage for their services.
It is essential to value and prioritize the education sector in the country to ensure that the future generations receive the best education possible.
