Kaduna State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Ja’afaru Sani, has revealed that the state has increased the salary of public school teachers by 32.5%.
He revealed that 27.5 percent would be added to all the teachers while 5% was an incentive for teachers posted to rural areas.
According to him, head teachers would be entitled to a 3-Bedroom accommodation while other teachers would have 2-bedrooms flats in addition to motorcycles to ease their transportation challenges to schools.
He said the measure became necessary to retain qualified and professional teachers posted to rural areas.
Sani maintained that the state public schools would no longer be dumping ground for those seeking employment through political patronage.
On the replacement of the sacked 22,000 teachers, he said the selection of the first batch of 10,000 teachers for posting across the 23 LGA was in the final stage.
