Ogun Assembly Assures ASUSS Of Speedy Of Principals General Bill To Fasttrack Appointment

Ogun State House of Assembly has assured the members of Academic Staff Union of Secondary School ( ASUSS) that a bill seeking legal framework for the appointment of Principal General, being considered by the house, will be given accelerated passage into law

Speaker of the house, Right Honourable. Oludaisi Elemide gave the assurance, while playing host to members of the union led by the Chairman, Comrade Oluwaseun Agbesanwa, on a courtesy call at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Already the bill had scaled through the first reading on the floor of the Assembly 

Elemide, while responding to the request of the ASUSS members, assured that the Assembly would have a holistic look at the State pension law  to address the grey areas in conjunction with all stakeholders.

Deputy Speaker of the house Bolanle Lateefat Ajayi and the Minority Lukman Adeleye in their earlier separate remarks,lauded the process of recruiting teachers under the Ogun teach scheme in the State, describing them as highly dedicated, certificated and certified teachers.

They acknowledged the efforts of Governor Dapo Abiodun led administration in the rehabilitation of schools in all parts of the State.

Also speaking, the State Chairman of ASUSS commended the Assembly for giving priority through legislative process to the appointment of Principals General in the State; requesting for a status of permanent secretary for them.

The Chairman who lauded State Government for the provision of infrastructure in schools across the State, stressed the need for more infrastructure and payment of rural allowance to teachers posted to the grassroot.

He called on the Assembly to have a second look at the State pension law, with a view to extending its take-off date to address emerging issues surrounding its implementation for workers retiring in the months ahead to have their monthly pensions.

Former governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel's administration had introduced the policy of appointing Principal General of equivalent of a Permanent Secretary status for each of the Egba, Remo, Ijebu and Yewa Divisions before end of his tenure in 2011 but the immediate past administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun discarded such appointment for eight years between 2011 and 2019 before the incumbent Governor Abiodun's government re-introduced the appointment now being legalized through the bill before the lawmakers for consideration and passage into law
