OYO GOVT REINSTATES 129 TEACHERS

Oyo State government has reinstated 129 public primary school teachers sacked by former Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s administration.

The Executive Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board, Nureni Adeniran, disclosed this in a statement by his media aide, Olamide Adeniji, on Wednesday in Ibadan.

Mr Adeniran said the state executive council had approved the reinstatement of 129 officers wrongly dismissed by the state government between 2011 and 2019.

He said it was subject to the dismissed teachers agreeing not to demand arrears payment for the period they were away, which the state converted to leave of absence.

Mr Adeniran appreciated Governor Seyi Makinde’s consideration in administering the pacesetter state.

He said the recent reinstatement of the teachers was a symbolic achievement that could not be neglected.

“Apart from being an addition to the dwindling numbers of teachers in the public primary sector, thousands of family dependants who have been subjected to untold economic hardship due to the layoff of their breadwinners will now have a new lease of life,” Mr Adeniran said.

He, therefore, called on teachers in the state to reciprocate Governor Makinde’s gesture through a commitment to duties and redouble their dedication to work.
