1.1 Background of the study
It has been generally observed that Nigeria is one of the third world tries. Nigeria is also related 10th position among the poorest countries in the according to worldbank period report of 2001. Many sectors in Nigeria as agricultural, education and industrial as well as oil and soon have been facing a lot of economic problem. Many of these sector usually face with all problems. It is also observe that many workers in those sectors are not only paid. There are evidence that teacher as one of the unit in the educational sector have been victim of irregularities in payment of salaries and advances. It is also observed that many people are running away from the teaching profession. Many school leavers are not ready to seek teaching appointment and those who found themselves in the field are still looking for her appointment somewhere else. Reason for this is the irregularities payment of teacher salaries. Due to the economic hardship, teacher have been facing a lot of ridicules, before a teacher can secure an apartment to rent it will cause him or her of problem, many landlords are not ready to rent out their houses to the teachers. They believe that teachers are very poor and they cannot afford the payment of the rentage. In the beginning of their notice, thy will write “ house for rentage not for the rentage of teachers” many teachers spend nothing than six to eight month if not for a year looking for accommodation before they can secure it furthermore, teachers children always suffer to pay their school fees is a problem not to talk of buying text books and other learning materials this put away of the children among the students who perform low in the school, since necessary earning materials were not provided for them.
In addition, teachers who have two or four children cannot afford to finance them they have to pick of the children that they believe to be brilliant to continue their education while the remaining children have to learn draft work this was a result of in payment of their salaries and entitlements
I could remember in early 90’s f not t grace of God some of their children that were in higher institution would not have been able to complete their academic pursuit due to his hardship. Similarly in any social gatherings many are look down on teachers. Let take for example, if they have to call people to the high table or they are introducing special dignitaries, they will never invite or introduce teachers in such occasion. Within the family, people don’t have regard for teacher for example, if they want to pick somebody in the family to cheiftancy, they will not pick teacher, despite that e may be the appropriate person to be spend for those people who are in the position to elect him for the post. When heget to the post they believe he will not be able to spend the way he ought to spend. More also, if teachers needs some essentials materials and there is no money on him. The only way one can get what one need is to buy on credit when nobody is ready to give freely. In such a situation no sellers is ready and willing to sell on credit to any teacher while their counterpart in the civil service can easily buy on credit irrespective of the amount. Furthermore, their standards of living is very low, many of the teachers are living in poverty, some of them are living in one room apartment, which ought not to be so in some families where the husband and wives are teacher to afford three square meals when their salaries are not forth coming is a problem not to talk of purchasing cloth and other house equipments scarcely can you find teacher with modern electronic gadget such as video C.D television set and soon, some families where husband and wives are also teachers but during nonpayment of their salaries their consumption and expenditure were not affected. Therefore, the researcher wants to investigate means or mode of survival in a distressed economy among those teachers.
