Oyo Govt Reinstates Teachers Dismissed By Former Administration


At least 129 public primary school teachers sacked by former late Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s administration have been reinstated by Oyo State government.

The Executive Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board ( SUBEB), Mr Nureni Adeniran revealed this in a statement on Wednesday by his media aide Olamide Adeniji.

He 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 arrears payment for the period they were away, which the state converted to leave of absence.

Mr Adeniran appreciated Governor Seyi Makinde’s consideration in administering the pacesetter state.

He said the recent reinstatement of the teachers was a symbolic achievement that could not be neglected.

According to him, “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, therefore, called on teachers in the state to reciprocate Mr Makinde’s gesture through a commitment to duties and redouble their dedication to work.
