• Secondary school teachers in Bauchi State barricaded the Government House on Tuesday to protest against 11 months of unpaid salaries.

    Most of the teachers are newly recruited by the state government since last year but are yet to receive their salaries.

    The protesters who lamented over their plight since their recruitment stressed that they could no longer cope with the trend and urged the government to address the situation.

    Mr Tijani Abubakar who spoke on behalf of the protesters, lamented that since the state government employed them on April 16, 2014, they had not been paid.

    He said: “In the spirit of leadership by example, we want Governor Isa Yuguda to intervene and address this situation because we are suffering.”

    The teachers, who arrived the Government House around 9am refused to leave despite the scorching sun.
