APC, Buni
Gov Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe has approved the revised retirement age for teachers from 60 to 65 years.

This is contained in a statement signed by the state’s Head of Service (HoS), Alhaji Muhammad Nura, in Damaturu on Tuesday.

Nura said the civil service years had also been reviewed from 35 to 40 years.

“This gesture is limited to education officers/teaching staff only, and it is with immediate effect,” Nura said.

The HoS, however, said the revised retirement age and years of service were not automatic as officers would be required to demonstrate fitness after medical examination.

“Those found to be unfit will be advised to retire accordingly,” he said.
