NUT, Nigerian Union of Teachers

Some secondary school teachers in Kwara state have signified their intention to formally terminate their membership of the Nigeria Union of Teachers due to the difference in their aspirations.

The teachers, under the aegis of Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS) also hinged their action on the basis of different employers.

The chairman of the association, Jimoh Daudu, made this announcement at a lecture organised to mark the 2020 World Teachers Day on Monday in Ilorin.

Daudu said, their membership of the NUT was “a marriage of inconvenience’’, hence the need to split out to better agitate and make the demand for their peculiar challenges.

“ASUSS belongs to the state government while NUT belongs to Local Government Councils and Federal Government. So, it is a marriage of inconvenience.

“If there is a problem within the state setting and you have somebody that is leading you, not working with the state, then automatically the state government will turn it down.

“But when we have somebody working within us and he is a state worker, whatever he says will be the right thing.

“The employers are different.” He concluded.
