Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics with the assistance of statistical package for social scientists (SPSS) programme. The findings revealed limited existence of welfare provision like teaching facilities, health and safety facilities, interpersonal relation and salary. The findings also show that the provision of welfare was poorly managed and therefore welfare provisions had contributed less to organizational commitment. The study therefore recommends a significant increase in teachers’ pay and a critical review of the management of teachers’ welfare to be in line with human resource practices. Administrators need to practice transparency, fairness and consistency in welfare administration. Administrators should also be trained and sensitized about the value of welfare and also be made aware that pay motivates teachers to perform at their best.
