An End To Stoppage Of Teachers Promotion Arrears Payment By Delta State Government

This petition had 5 supporters

The usual practice by an employer who promotes an employee is to give the newly promoted employee some additional financial benefit.This increment in salary is normally reflected from the date such promotion takes effect.

Where the aforesaid increase in salary,owing to a promotion is not implemented on the date the promotion takes effect, the increment piles up monthly until such a time when the it is added to an employee's pay.

If for instance, the difference in a worker's pay due to a promotion,is N10,000/month,and such payment is delayed for 5months,then that person's promotion arrears becomes 5 times N10,000 which becomes N50,000.

Now as a Teacher,before salary arrears payment was stopped by former Governor Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan's administration, I used to enjoy the financial benefit afforded me by the payment of my salary arrears.As a matter of fact,I remember using my last promotion arrears to settle my children's school fees and books many years ago.

Quite certainly,lots of Teachers like me sharing the same employer,would have abundant stories of the good uses they put their promotion arrears payments to before it was stopped by Governor Uduaghan's administration in Delta State. So without any doubts whatsoever, the restoration of promotion arrears payment by the current administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa,will surely put smiles on the faces of Teachers again,especially given the current recession Nigerians have to grapple with.
