The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Funds, NSITF has solicited for collaboration to Insure teachers nationwide.
The Managing Director of NSIFT, Mallam Umar Munir Abubakar, made the request when he visited the Director-General of National Teacher’s Institute, Dr. Aminu Ladan Sharehu in Kaduna.
Mallam Abubakar said the funds would be committed towards covering teachers nationwide due to the increase risk they face in doing their job, especially in the North-East.
The Director-General of NTI, Dr. Sharehu, said the Institute would key into the insurance scheme to motivate teachers for enhanced productivity.
He urged NSIFT to also encourage other concerned institutions like the Universal Basic Education Commission, Nigerian Union of Teachers and other sakeholders to embrace the scheme.
