Reduce our salaries… teachers are more important than politicians - Sen Murray-Bruce | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Senator representing Bayelsa east, Ben Murray-Bruce has called for a reduction in the salaries of politicians.

In a message posted on Facebook, the lawmaker lamented the plight of teachers, saying they deserve better pay.

Bruce said Nigeria would be a better country if teachers were properly remunerated.

“Nigeria has some of the highest paid politicians and some of the lowest paid teachers. Flip this equation and Nigeria will develop,” he wrote.

“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?”

  3. I know say that idiotic cow/aboki no go listen noq ,
