A special salary scale for teachers in the country has been approved by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday.
The announcement was made by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who represented the president during the 2020 World Teachers Day celebration.
Adama also announced that the President has also increased the years of service for teachers from 35 to 40 years.
According to him, the implementation of the new salary scheme is to encourage teachers to deliver better services.
Teachers have for a long time complained about their retirement age which they felt was too short at 35 years.
However, now that President Buhari has increased the retirement age to 40 years, he has put smiles on the faces of many teachers all over the country.
