5 years ago

The Lagos State Teachers’ Establishment and Pension Office, TEPO, has revealed that an average of 10 teachers die monthly in the post-primary teaching service of the state.
The Permanent Secretary of TEPO, Mrs Sewanu Ayodele-Amosu, made the disclosure at a Sensitisation Seminar and Capacity Building on Healthy Living for Post-Primary Teaching Staff of the state.

According to her, apart from sudden collapse resulting in either temporary or permanent confinement in bed, the disturbing rate of deaths among teachers in the state called for concern.

She said, “This is another contributory factor for this worrisome adverse health condition of the teachers.

“This health seminar will be held quarterly to educate teachers on the importance of healthy living and to provide support for those that have health challenges.

“This seminar is designed to effect real behavioral changes among staff of the post-primary teaching service and promote capacity for maintenance and sustainability of good and vibrant health.”

The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule, said the state government would continue to pay adequate attention to the needs of teachers as it recognised their role to humanity.
