The Oyo State Government has reinstated 129 public primary school teachers unlawfully sacked by the previous administration.

Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran stated this, yesterday, while congratulating the teachers.

Adeniran said the Executive Council of Oyo State approved the teachers’ reinstatement subject to agreeing not to demand for payment of arrears for the period they were away, which the state converted to leave of absence.

He said that the reinstatement of the teachers was a symbolic achievement that could not be neglected.

“This is a plus for the education sector. Apart from being an addition to the dwindling number of teachers in the public primary sector, thousands of family dependents that have been subjected to untold economic hardship due to the layoff of their breadwinners will now have a new lease of life,” Adeniran said.

The executive chairman, therefore, urged teachers in the state to reciprocate Makinde’s gesture through commitment to duties and redoubling their dedication to work.

Besides, he implored them to key into the administration’s goal to change the narratives in the education sector of the state.
