Mafindi, who stated this yesterday in Jalingo during an interview with journalists, gave the state government a three- day ultimatum to settle the salaries of the primary school teachers.
“We are, indeed, giving the giving the present administration that has promised to rescue the state, three working days to settle the salaries it is owing our primary school teachers or wait for our next line of action.
“During the Christmas period, the state government paid workers but skipped primary school teachers,” he said.
He stressed that NUT will not tolerate anymore, that teachers cannot continue to work without salary.
