Buhari Approves 65 Years As Retirement Age For Teachers

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the increament of retirement age for teachers from 60 to 65 years, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has said.

The minister made this known during a public hearing on Thursday on the need to insulate teachers from the retirement age for public servants organised by the House of Representatives Joint Committee on Basic Education and Public Service.

Adamu informed the committee that the Nigerian Union of Teachers had submitted the new retirement age proposal to the ministry and the National Assembly for approval.

He said that the drive was based on the need for a better performance by teachers and the desire to have quality teachers in Nigeria’s primary and secondary 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,” he said.
