Teachers more important than politicians; reduce our salaries, increase theirs – Ben Bruce tells Buhari

As Nigeria joined the rest of the world to mark World Teachers’ Day on Wednesday, the lawmaker representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Senator Ben Murray Bruce urged President Muhammadu Buhari to pay teachers more and politicians less.
He hinted that teachers were more important than politicians and as such, should be well paid.
Ben Murray-Bruce took to his Twitter handle @benmurraybruce yesterday to mark the ‘World Teacher’s Day’, calling for an increase in their salary.
The chairman of Silverbird group tweeted: “Nigeria has some of the highest paid politicians and some of the lowest paid teachers. Flip this equation and Nigeria will develop.


“On this World Teachers Day, I thank Nigeria’s teachers and urge that salaries of politicians be reduced so that teachers’ salary can be increased!
“Teachers are much more relevant to the progress of Nigeria than we politicians.
“A well paid teacher is a better teacher but is a well-paid legislator a better legislator?,” he wrote.
October 5 is set aside every year to celebrate teachers across the globe.
