Osun govt states conditions, approves new retirement age for teachers



The Osun State Government has approved the immediate enforcement and implementation of new retirement age and length of service for teachers in the state civil service.

The approval, according to a circular issued by the State’s Head of Service, Ayanleye Aina, is also aimed at restoring normalcy across schools in the state.

The circular also directed those interested in enjoying the new retirement age to comply with the guidelines as stipulated.

The state government also directed the Osun State Ministry of Finance and the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, to immediately stop the payment of salaries of teachers who have been enjoying the new retirement age without fulfilling the conditions attached.


According to the circular, “I wish to refer to our Circulars Ref. Nos. SMD.61/VOL.III/36 dated 31st May, 2022 and SMD.61/Vol.IV/52 dated 20th October, 2023 on the above subject, and reiterate that the conditions stated in the aforementioned Circulars still subsist. Consequently, all those who have been enjoying the new retirement age and length of Service without fulfilling the necessary prerequisites have, by this Circular, ceased to enjoy such benefits until their compliance with the extant Circulars.

“For the purpose of emphasis, for any Officer to enjoy the new retirement age and length of Service, the concerned Officer is requested to ensure that the guidelines are strictly adhered to.

“For avoidance of doubt, a copy of the guidelines under reference is hereby attached.

“Relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government are requested to ensure wide circulation of this Circular and strict compliance,” the circular concluded.
