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.
