Reps Deputy Minority Whip Commends Presidential Approval For His Bill on New Teachers Retirement Age
As President Muhammadu Buhari approves the 65 year retirement age for teachers in the country, the initiator of the bill and Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Chief Adesegun Adekoya wants the beneficiaries of the gesture to rise to the responsibility of helping to raise the nation’s education index.
Chief Adekoya while speaking with Radio Nigeria expressed optimism that the increase in retirement age would motivate teachers for enhanced productivity and efficient performance for the overall good of Nigeria.
Noting that to whom much was given, much was equally expected, the lawmaker representing Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency at the House expressed happiness that the bill he raised on the floor of the House in 2018 had finally received presidential approval.
He encouraged the teachers to justify the belief that the older they got, the wiser and more knowledgeable they became in the bid to nurture young minds to contribute positively to the process of nation building.
The House of Representatives Deputy Minority Whip also assured people of his federal constituency that he would continue to generate and sponsor Bills and motions targeted at making life more meaningful for them regardless of their status in the society.
