World Teachers’ Day: Education in crisis in Nigeria — NUT President

The Minister said since he assumed office, NUT has not embarked on strike, commending the union for patriotism, even as he reeled out the government’s packages for teachers.

The newly elected President of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Audu Amba, has said the challenges of shortage of teachers, poor infrastructure, inadequate funding and refusal of some states to implement the N30,000 minimum, among many others, have thrown Nigeria’s education system into “crisis.”

Mr Amba said this on Wednesday while delivering his speech at the Eagle Square in Abuja during an event to mark this year’s World Teachers’ Day.

He said: “It is regrettable that this deplorable state of education and poor working conditions of teachers adversely affect education service delivery, especially in the public sector.”

Mr Amba, therefore, called on both the federal and state governments to increase budgetary allocation for the sector.


    The Nigerian Union of Teachers envisions a future where every child in Nigeria has access to quality education delivered by well-trained and motivated teachers. We strive for a society where education is valued as the cornerstone of development and where teachers are respected, empowered, and adequately supported in their vital role as nation builders.
    Our mission is to champion the rights and welfare of teachers, promote excellence in education, and advocate for policies that ensure equitable access to quality education for all Nigerian children. We are committed to fostering professional growth and development among educators, advocating for improved working conditions, and collaborating with stakeholders to create an enabling environment for teaching and learning.
    1. Professionalism: We uphold the highest standards of professionalism and integrity in all aspects of our work, striving for excellence in education and setting a positive example for our peers and students.
    2. Solidarity: We believe in the power of unity and solidarity among teachers to effect positive change in the education sector. We stand together in advocating for our rights, supporting one another, and working collaboratively to achieve common goals.
    3. Equity: We are committed to promoting equity and inclusivity in education, ensuring that every child, regardless of background or circumstance, has equal access to quality learning opportunities.


The history of the Nigerian Union of Teachers dates back to [Year], when a group of visionary educators came together to address the pressing issues facing teachers in colonial Nigeria. Over the decades, the union has grown in strength and influence, weathering political changes and social upheavals to become one of the most prominent voices in Nigerian education.


Over the years, the Nigerian Union of Teachers has achieved numerous milestones in its quest to improve the quality of education and enhance the welfare of teachers in Nigeria. Some of our key achievements include:
  1. Securing improved salaries and benefits for teachers through collective bargaining and advocacy efforts.
  2. Advocating for the implementation of policies aimed at enhancing the professional development of teachers, including training programs and capacity-building initiatives.
  3. Spearheading campaigns to address issues such as teacher shortages, classroom overcrowding, and infrastructure deficits in schools.
