Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has approved the implementation of 65 years as retirement age for teachers and lecturers under the state’s higher institutions.



This was just as Governor presented a letter of permanent and pensionable appointment to a young lady who lost her legs while serving as a temporary staff at Hotoro health care clinic for about 15 years.


The Governor also announced the approval of 40 years as the service retirement years for teachers and lecturers across the state’s tertiary institutions.


He made the assertion during an award night organised by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) on Saturday in Kano to mark the 2021 May Day.


His words, “the federal government has since approved this for teachers and lecturers working under the federal government, hence, teachers in Kano State are also not left behind.

According to him, “Therefore, our teachers and lecturers as from now, they will also start to enjoy such retirement age from 60-65, and years of service from 35-40 as the federal workers are enjoying.”


He noted that the state government has introduced so many policies aimed at improving the welfare of the workers in the state.


Ganduje hinted that we have introduced a contributory health scheme for the workers and their families to have the cheapest health services in the state. I am happy, with your corporation, today we have the best contributory health scheme in Nigeria.


“We are also collaborating with private organisations in the state to see how they can also benefit from such schemes aimed at strengthening the policy.”


He, howhower, disclosed that “The Kano government has also introduced a health trust fund where five percent of the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) and one percent from the earning of Local Governments will be contributed, and that will provide health services to our workers and the people of Kano State.”


Equally, the Governor said, “we have also introduced free and compulsory primary to secondary schools education so that our workers will not have to pinch from their salaries to pay school fees for their children.”
