9,220 Teachers Receive Promotion In Oyo

Gov. Seyi Makinde

9,220 primary school teachers have been promoted by the Oyo State Government.

The beneficiaries, who are teachers in grade levels 13 to 15, received their letters of promotion on Friday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (Oyo SUBEB), handed over 7,460 letters to the beneficiaries during the presentation which took place in Ibadan.

Adeniran said the move was in line with the promise made to the teachers who were due for promotion to their next rank between 2017 and 2020.

Speaking on the issue of the teachers who have been in the same rank for six years, he said: “This policy has affected the morale of teachers in public primary schools, because their counterparts in the secondary schools were not affected by the policy.

“I am pleased to be here this morning at the official presentation of promotion letters to our teachers from the grade level 13 to 15.

“You are all aware that a similar programme was held in October 2021, for teachers and non-teaching staff.”

“This by implication means that all teachers affected are going to enjoy their promotions with a month’s arrears and this takes financial effect from the month of June 2022.”

The SUBEB boss added that teachers who remained without promotion during the six-year waiting period until their retirement would also receive their reward.

“They can enjoy it by simply applying for the re-computation of their gratuity and pension in line with the Pension Act," he said.

Adeniran appreciated the state governor for his approval of the promotion, promising that teachers will be dedicated to their responsibilities.

“The present administration has positively impacted the lives of both public and civil servants because of its people-oriented policies.

“In view of this, I want to admonish all our teachers to be dedicated to their duties, because to whom much is given, much is expected.

“Once again, I wish to admonish all teachers to be patient and appreciative of the present administration’s various kind gestures, geared towards ameliorating their sufferings, improving their career progression and their well-being, all of which are unprecedented,” he added.

Adeniran also recognised the support of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), and the Association of Primary School Head-teachers of Nigeria, Oyo State Branch (AOPSHON), in the success of the event.

The event was attended by principal officers of NUT, AOPSHON, Directors at OYO SUBEB, and teachers among other.
