The Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN) has urged Plateau government to harmonise salaries of primary school teachers with other civil servants in the state.
The leader of FOMWAN, Mrs Mairo Sani, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos on Monday that it became necessary to enable them discharge their duties effectively.
According to her, it is logical to harmonise the salaries because they all buy from the same market.
“Why will the primary school teachers be paid less when they go to the same markets with the state civil servants,’’ she said.
She urged the state government to ensure that salaries of workers were paid as at when due to alleviate their sufferings.
The association’s leader said “it is sad and it is gradually becoming a norm in Plateau to owe workers salaries’’.
Sani also advised the government to ensure that workers were trained and retrained to enable them compete with their contemporaries globally.
She called on the Federal Government to address cases of incessant killings in the country. (NAN)
