Governor Adeleke Changes Retirement Age Conditions for Osun Teachers

Governor Adeleke Changes Retirement Age Conditions for Osun Teachers 

In order to benefit from the new retirement age of 65 years old and length of service of 40 years for teachers in Osun public schools, Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun has reiterated the enforcement of approved guidelines.

This was stated in a circular that the Head of Service, Ayanleye Aina, released on Tuesday in Osogbo.

The circular stated that everyone who wants to take advantage of the new, higher retirement age has to abide by the specified rules.

The guidelines state that a teacher must be a member of the education cadre recognised in the scheme of service in order to be eligible for benefits under the scheme.

In addition, it states that the officer must not be facing disciplinary action, be registered with the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), and be deemed medically fit by a licenced physician.

It further stated that the eligible officer must apply six months in advance of reaching sixty years of age or thirty-five years of service, whichever comes first.

The guidelines stipulated that the application must be sent to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, along with endorsements from the eligible officer’s head teacher or principal. It did state, however, that the extension was not pensionable.

It ordered the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and the Ministry of Finance to immediately cease paying salaries to individuals who have already reached the new retirement age without meeting the requirements.

The circular reads, “For the purpose of emphasis, for any officer to enjoy the new retirement age and length of service, the concerned officer is requested to ensure that the guidelines are strictly adhered to.

“For avoidance of doubt, a copy of the guidelines under reference is hereby attached. Relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government are requested to ensure wide circulation of this circular and strict compliance.”
