Special Salary and Increase Years of Service for Teachers in Nigeria

I believe that more recognition and appreciation is finally being given to teachers after so many years of being under paid and seen as a minor occupation in Nigeria.

It was reported that during a speech during which the minister of Education stood in for the President, it was announced that the president has approved a special salary scale and at the same time also increased the number of years of service from 35 to 40 years .

well, more details of this hasn’t been released yet, but this seems to be a give and take situation where a special service is awarded but you also get to work for more years… tell me what you think about this.
