Primary, Secondary School NASU Protest in Ibadan, Want 65 years as Retirement Age



Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), Oyo state chapter has protested against the discriminatory industrial relations practices by the Federal Government to its members at the State Secretariat, Ibadan.

Speaking on Monday on behalf of the protesters, the Secretary of NASU, Oyo State chapter, Folorunso Olubunmi, highlighted the discriminatory practices against them to include exclusion of non-teaching staff from the extension of retirement age to 65 years and 40 years in service.

Pointing to the announcement of the extension by President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2020 World Teachers Day celebration, Folorunso argued that non-teaching staff have the requisite qualifications and should be accommodated.

Also, Folorunso demanded that non-teaching staff should be included in the approval of the Special Teacher Pension Scheme to guarantee better welfare for them in retirement.

Similarly, Folorunso also asked that there should be the provision of loan facilities, peculiarity allowance and other incentives for non-teaching staff just like their teaching counterparts.

The Special Adviser (Labour Affairs), Bayo Titilola-Sodo, while addressing the protesters, reproved discriminatory practices of the federal government regarding non-teaching staff.
He, however, assured that the Oyo State government was working on harmonizing allowances received by non-teaching staff with that of teaching staff.
