Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, is extending the retirement age for teachers in Edo State to 65 years or 40 years of service, in furtherance of his commitment to boosting workers’ welfare.
The state Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa, who disclosed this in a statement, said the governor’s approval reinforces his unwavering commitment to building a solid foundation for repositioning the education sector in the state.
He noted that the development will ensure that teachers with decades of experience are retained in service to contribute their quota in providing quality education to Edo pupils.
