President Buhari supports 65-year retirement age for teachers
14 Dec, 2018

The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu has said that the Muhammadu Buhari administration was in support of jacking up the retirement age for teachers from 60 to 65 years. The minister made this known at a public hearing on the need to insulate teachers from the retirement age for public servants organized by the House Joint Committee on Basic Education and Public Service.

Adamu informed the house joint committee that the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) had submitted the new retirement age proposal to the ministry and the National Assembly for approval. Earlier, the Chairman House Committee on Basic Education, Representative Zakari Mohammed, said that the bill was being considered for passage. He says the bill seeks to absolve teachers from the public service rule which sets the retirement age for government workers at 60, and set for them a new retirement age of 65.
