Lagos NUT intensifies lobby to extend teachers' retirement age

Lagos NUT intensifies lobby to extend teachers' retirement age

The Lagos State Wing of the Ni­geria Union of Teachers (NUT) on Monday called for an imme­diate extension of the retirement age of teachers from 60 to 65 years.
Mr Segun Raheem, Chairman of the Lagos NUT, told the News Agen­cy of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview that the extension had become im­perative.
He argued that the retirement age extension was necessary to retain ex­perienced people in the profession.
Raheem noted that the rate at which experienced people were leaving the teaching profession was alarming and that retired teachers needed urgent replacement.
He argued that if the retirement age of lecturers and other professionals such as lawyers could be extended it was logical for the retirement age of teachers at the foundation level of education to be extended.
