On Sunday, April 30, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) reported that just 50% of Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers who had previously been deployed around the nation had received their pay.
The Commission acknowledged in a statement that only 50% of its 35,550 teachers who were sent to various schools in February and March 2023 had received their full salary.
TSC provided a justification for the hold up, stating that some of the instructors had delayed in reporting to their respective institutions, which had caused a hold up in the processing of their salaries.
The recruits have 30 days to report to their respective stations as per process; as a result, some start their jobs later than others.

The processing of their salaries is occasionally delayed as a result of this. According to TSC, the Commission has already processed more than 50% of the newly hired teachers’ wages.
The Commission further instructed instructors who had been paid to contact their respective banks to confirm receipt of their wages.
Additionally, TSC apologized for the delay and assured the teachers that their salaries would be paid by May 2023.
“We apologize for any delays that may have resulted from teachers failing to report on time to their stations or necessary documentation being submitted late.
The TSC stated that “every effort is being made to affect all salaries in May 2023.”
Furthermore, TSC advised the teachers to get in touch with the Director of Human Resource Management and Development if they had any additional inquiries.
On April 23, the first group of Junior Secondary School (JSS) tutors called attention to a problem in the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) implementation due to the postponed salaries.
As the first term of the top CBC class came to an end, education stakeholders urged the Ministry of Education to take action.
After the Ministry of Education announced on April 14, 2023 that it had released Free Secondary Education (FSE) funds for JSS, a crisis ensued.
