He said it was subject to the dismissed teachers agreeing not to demand arrears payment for the period they were away, which the state converted to leave of absence.

“Apart from being an addition to the dwindling numbers of teachers in the public primary sector, thousands of family dependants who have been subjected to untold economic hardship due to the layoff of their breadwinners, will now have a new lease of life,” he stated.
