Oyo State Government has reinstated 129 public primary school teachers, who were unlawfully sacked by the previous administration.

 

Executive Chairman, State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran, made this known in a statement by his media aide, Mr. Olamide Adeniji, yesterday in Ibadan.

 

Adeniran said the state Executive Council had approved the reinstatement of 129 officers wrongly dismissed by the state government between 2011 and 2019.

 

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

 

Adeniran lauded Governor Seyi Makinde for his kindness and selfless consideration in administering the pacesetter state.

 

He said the recent reinstatement of the state’s 129 school teachers was a symbolic achievement that could not be neglected.

 

“This is a plus for the education sector.

“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,” Adeniran said.

 

He, therefore, called on teachers in the state to reciprocate Makinde’s gesture through commitment to duties and redouble their dedication to work.

 

The executive chairman also pleased them to strict into Makinde-led administration’s aim to change the narratives in the education sector of the state.
