“THIS IS WICKEDNESS!!! WHY ME???? I am a teacher in His Grace Secondary School located in Nsukka in Enugu state. I teach mathematics, from SS1 to SS3.  The problem started when I started a baked cashew nut business. Despite the fact that it is a woman business, I still do it to help me augment my salary,” he wrote.


“We closed for the term on the 28th of July 2023. And after the results have been given out,the school proprietor paid everyone his/her salary except me. He said I should choose between selling the cashew nuts and teaching.


“He said I didn’t come to teach but to do business, and because of that he will not pay me. Some of my fellow teachers pleaded with him to pay me,but he refused. So that is how I left without being paid.”
