Written by Morenike Adebayo on July 28, 2016
The Lagos State Government has refuted reports that at least ten teachers in the Post Primary Teaching Service Commission die monthly. The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, in a statement issued on Wednesday, said the trend of death was noticed in the records of past administrations which compelled the current administration to introduce a quarterly sensitization seminar for teachers.
Ayorinde said Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration has not recorded deaths of teachers as being reported in some newspapers and online platform. He said the Lagos State government has put in place comprehensive free health programmes to ensure that its entire workforce remain healthy always.
