From JIDAUNA YANUNG, Abuja
THE meeting between the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Area Council chairmen over the payment of the new minimum wage of primary school teachers ended in deadlock.
It would be recalled that the Union had on August 25, 2020 issued a seven day ultimatum to the council chairmen to pay the primary school teachers new minimum wage.
Addressing journalists after the meeting Chairman Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) FCT chapter, Comrade Stephen Knabayi said the meeting ended in a dead lock as the union and the chairmen could not arrive at a dialogue.
According to him, the two could not come to a compromise because the chairmen complained of the councils financial constraints and LGEA verifications which he said the union rejected totally.
