The conflict between the president of the Taraba State Chapter of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Peter Julius, and union members took on another dimension.
The president, let’s remember, fought an ongoing battle with union members and officials, which DAILY Poyst said led to the closure of the union’s secretary of state located along Donga Road in the metropolis. by Jalingo.
The closure of the secretariat, according to our source, was aimed at preventing the collapse of public order.
The president was also recently summoned by the State House of Assembly to defend petitions against him.
Rather than send him back to the unemployment market, DAILY POST noticed that he had been tactically sacked from his post as NUT president because he was forced to transfer from teaching to administration.
In a letter signed by the State President of the Council for Universal Basic Education (SUPEB), MYakubu Agbaizo, Julius was asked to report to Lau’s Education Secretary for immediate release.
Part of the letter, as DAILY POST noted, read: “I am writing to convey approval of your immediate transfer and assignment from teaching to administrative staff.
“Therefore, you are hereby assigned to the education authority of the local government of Lau for your mission. So Education Secretary Lau will mail you appropriately in accordance with this guideline.
“Likewise, I have also been tasked with conveying the executive’s approval for your immediate promotion to the rank of Deputy Director on GL 15.”
Confirming his transfer from teaching to administration, the beleaguered NUT boss said, “I have since reported back to my new post at Lau.”
Julius, who has vowed not to speak about his alleged dismissal as state NUT chairman, said the Union’s public relations officer (PRO) will address the press at the appropriate time.
A senior government official said the government stepped in to save the day.
Some union members who frowned at the measures taken by the government said their next course of action would be determined by the union leadership at national headquarters.
