According to the Minister of Education, Mr Adamu Adamu, the essence of the bill was to give legal backing for the approval of the new retirement age of 65 from 60 years for teachers and extend their period of service from 35 to 40 years.

The bill, according to him, also seeks to introduce bursary awards, special rural posting allowances, and other items that will encourage brilliant Nigerians to take up teaching jobs.

With the passage of this bill into law, teachers across the country now have their retirement age and years of service extended by five years.
