Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has extended the retirement age of teachers and lecturers working with the state-owned institutions of learning to the age of 65 years.
The Kano State Chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) organised an award ceremony to celebrate the May day holiday that led to the governor to deliver some keynote address.
According to him, the federal workers in the state will have their retirement age at 65 and other things like a health scheme for workers in the state and their families to have the cheapest health services has also been implemented.
The governor said. “The Federal Government has since approved this for teachers and lecturers working in its institutions, hence, teachers in Kano State are also not left behind. Therefore, our teachers and lecturers as from now on will start to enjoy such retirement age from 60-65, and years of service from 35-40 as the federal workers are enjoying,”
“We have introduced a contributory health scheme for workers in the state and their families to have the cheapest health services. I am happy that with your co-operation, today we have the best contributory health scheme in Nigeria. We are also collaborating with the private organisations in the state to see how they can benefit from such schemes aimed at strengthening the policy.’’
“And that will provide health services to our workers and the people of Kano State.’’
“Through that, our workers will not have to pinch from their salaries to pay school fees for their children.”
“The NLC is giving certificates of excellence to those that deserved to be honoured while some of them will go home with cash gifts ranging from N50,000 to N100,000 each,”
