9, 227 Oyo State Primary School Teachers Get Promotion Letters

The Oyo State Government on Friday presented Nine thousand, two hundred and twenty-seven letters of promotion to primary school Teachers on Grade level 13-15 in the State.

Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran disclosed this during the symbolic presentation of 2017-2020 letters to Seven Thousand, Four-Hundred and Sixty Teachers.

Dr Adeniran said the pending promotion letters are in fulfillment of Governor Seyi Makinde’s promises to teachers in the State.

Dr. Adeniran noted that the category of teachers who received their letters of promotion were placed on a six years waiting period by the previous administrations, adding that this policy had 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”, he said.

Adeniran appreciated the Executive Governor of the State, Engineer Seyi Makinde for his love for teachers, which was demonstrated by the approval granted, that six years waiting period be reverted with immediate effect.

Dr. Adeniran added that teachers that have retired from service, in the course of processing the approval for the lifting of the six year waiting period will also enjoy the promotion due to them, simply by applying for the re-computation of their gratuity and pension in line with the Pension Act.

He therefore called for the support of teachers, adding that the State Government, under Governor Seyi Makinde’s leadership has left no stone unturned to better the lot of teachers in the State.
