the Rivers State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress has backed 

the call for the exclusion of the salaries 

of primary school teachers from the 

control of the local government councils.

State NLC Chairman, BEARICE ITUBO said the 

fear being expressed by the Nigerian Union 

Teachers against the move for local 

government autonomy was valid.

Speaking in an interview with our 

correspondent CHINEDU IWUNNA, ITUBO said 

the welfare of primary schools teachers 

would not be adequately catered to by the 

local government administration.

She made a case for the local government 

councils to focus on the traditional 

council workers who have been there from 

the onset.

The labour leader maintained that the 

welfare of primary school teachers and 

primary healthcare workers should be left 

to the state government.

However; BEATRICE ITUBO maintained that 

the NLC was in total support of Local 

government autonomy.

The NLC Chairman also appealed to the 

Rivers State Government to ensure 

immediate release of the labour leaders in 

the judiciary who were kidnapped last week 

around Ikwerre on their way back from an 

official duty.
