Nigerian Union Of Teachers Submit New Retirement Age To National Assembly For Approval

Published

on

According to Reports, Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) has submitted a new retirement age proposal to the Ministry of Education and the National Assembly for approval, education minister Adamu Adamu has confirmed.

He said that the drive was based on the need for better performance by teachers and the desire to have quality teachers in the nation’s schools.

“Nigerian teachers to some extent require a reasonable retirement age like their counterparts in India, Canada, Belgium that have increased the retirement age for teachers to 65 years.

“We are appealing to the House to approve the bill because the ministry is in support of increasing the retirement age of teachers,” the minister added.

The minister is supporting the increase of the retirement age for teachers from 60 years to 65 years to allow for further improvement in the standard of basic and secondary education in the country.

Adamu said 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.

Speaking at the hearing, Chairman House Committee on Basic Education, Hon. Zakari Mohammed, also confirmed that the bill was being considered for passage.

“Teachers are the bedrock of any nation and as such their wealth of experience must be tapped to enhance the wellbeing of society.

“How long should we tap that knowledge legitimately in the school system is the question we except to answer today?” Mohammed said.

The House committee, he said, was also considering to amend the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria to strengthen its regulatory powers to promote professionalism and eradicate quacks.

ASUU to Embark on strike soon

Published

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has Announced that its members should not be held responsible if there is any disruption in the University system, as the Federal Government had not shown commitment to carrying out the 2019 Memorandum of Action.

ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this at a briefing in Abuja, to give an update on the ongoing renegotiation with the government and to clear the air over the N25billion confirmed by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, to have been approved for universities. Ogunyemi said the N25billion was meant to be a part-payment of the Earned Academic Allowances and should have been released between February 15 and 28, 2019, as agreed. But this was not done.

He said, “Since information on the amounts mentioned in the media went round, the ASUU has been inundated with enquiries on the union’s perspective to the story. Funding for the revitalisation of public universities has for years been of very high priority to ASUU.

“Reaching an agreement with the Federal Government has often been a frustrating journey for our union. It is often marked with protests, strikes and requires a conscious and focused engagement. The 2001 agreement, which gave birth to the 2009 agreement, was not an exemption. The exception here is the personality leading the government negotiation team. The current leadership of the government team clearly lacks the academic disposition and humility needed to undertake such task.

“Our members enjoy their work and hate to see any disruption in the smooth running of our universities. However, the level of frustration occasioned by the lackadaisical attitude of the government towards meeting the terms of the 2019 Memorandum of Action that was freely signed with our union is increasingly becoming unbearable.

“We, therefore, call on all Nigerian patriots, parents and students including the Nigeria Labour Congress to prevail on the government to keep to the terms of our agreement. Otherwise, our union should not be held responsible for any disruption in the system.”
