Reduce Our Salaries…Teachers Are More Important Than Politicians – Senator Ben Bruce

Ben Murray-Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, 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?”

    He should lead by example by giving back his own salary first to the Federal Government to use that and pay up the teachers in the nation.
    My problem with these people is that they keep coming to media to create unnecessary attentions whereas they actually know what to do if they had mean real business…..
