The effective date for the implementation of the 65 years’ retirement age and 40 years of service approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) is January 1. 

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu has said that revealed this on Thursday January 21 as he spoke at the 2020 ministerial briefing on Wednesday January 20, in Abuja. 

Adamu noted that there would be no uniform take-off date for all the other policies approved by President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2020 World Teachers’ Day.

He said effective dates for other policies would be announced subsequently after the submission of the report of the National Coordinating Committee.

Before now, the retirement age of teachers in the country was 60 years in age or 35 years in service.
