The Oyo State government has announced the cancellation of a six-year waiting period for teachers on Grade level 13-16 to be at par with their colleagues in the mainstream service.
In a statement on Thursday June 1, 2022, by the executive Chairman of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Nureni Adeniran, said cancelling the waiting period was necessitated by concerns for teachers’ welfare and stakeholders in the education sector.
Mr Adeniran applauded Governor Seyi Makinde’s investment in laudable projects to improve effective learning, and quality academic activities.
He stressed that the board and other educational bodies in the state were committed to learners’ gradual improvement and performance.
