The teachers spoke in the wake of resumption of academic activities for students in JSS1 to 3 and SS1 to 3 in the state.
While speaking to City News, some of the teachers said they have been without any source of livelihood since March when schools were initially shutdown.
One of the teachers who simply identified himself as Opia lamented that he was only recently evicted because couldn’t pay his rent.
“I hope the government is aware that teachers and staff of primary schools are jobless because of this unnecessary extension? I just got kicked out of my house by my landlady because I couldn’t pay my rent,” he said.
Another teacher, Susan Eke said it is heartbreaking that government has done nothing to alleviate their suffering.
She said primary school teachers have been subjected to untold hardship since schools were shutdown due to the corona pandemic.
Meanwhile a respondent has lamented that teachers of nursery and primary school would have a lot of work to do when they are finally allowed to resume.
“The children in my compound are loosing it. One of them cannot even spell yam anymore. They should allow them go back to school. The play is too much.”
