65 Years Is Now Retirement Age For Teachers In Delta

The retirement age for teachers on the payroll of Delta State Government is now  65 years or  attainment of 40 years in public service as approved for the government on Monday 

Before now retirement age for teachers was 60 years while period of service was 35 years

The State Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu who made this known shortly after the State Executive Council meeting in Asaba, says the same is applicable to the non-academic staff of the state-owned Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.

Aniagwu explained that the executive council gave the approval to enable the teachers and the tertiary institutions’ workers to contribute more to nation-building.

“We did this because we have seen that even at 65, many have garnered lots of experience to be able to teach more and have a clearer understanding of their fields of study", he stated

According to him, “The approvals were part of the resolutions reached the State Executive Council meeting in Asaba.

“And, they can continue to contribute to moulding minds. Forty years of service is not also a bad idea because we have seen most times that they retire without getting tired.

“Also for the non-teaching staff of our Colleges of Education and Polytechnics, we have given them the advantage of remaining in service as non-teaching staff for as much as 40 years.

“They will also remain in service for as long as 65 years of age. So they now have extra five years added to their retirement age and service year,” he said.

Aniagwu further said that the council approved some road projects for construction, including Osa and Sunny Ojubo Street and Ojeh Street in Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area, among others
