The Teachers Service Commission TSC has promised to pay all teachers who were recruited earlier this year. Through its official twitter handle the commission, apologised for delayed payment of salaries citing late reporting of teachers to their stations.
“The TSC recruited 35,550 Junior Secondary School teachers who reported to their stations in February and March 2023. As is procedure, the recruits are given 30 days within which to report to their various stations, which leads to some commencing their work later than others,”.
“This sometimes causes delays in the processing of their salaries. So far, the Commission has processed over 50% of the salaries of the newly employed teachers. Teachers can confirm the payments with their respective banks,” stated the commission.
