Lagos State Government Denies Ten Teachers Die Monthly

The Lagos State Government has refuted the claim being circulated in some print and online media that 10 teachers in the Post Primary Teaching Service Commission die monthly.

A statement issued on Wednesday by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, stated that that trend of death was noticed in the records of past administration which compelled the current administration in the State to introduce a quarterly sensitization seminar for teachers in the State employ.

The Commissioner further clarified that the Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration has not, and did not record deaths of teachers as being reported in some newspapers and online platform.

“As part of the State Government general wellness programme, Public Servants also enjoy comprehensive free health programme and also four of their dependants under 18 years,’’ he further said, adding that government also operates a well-equipped staff clinic, with modern facility and well-stuffed pharmacy.

Similarly, Ayorinde said the government organizes regular wellness and screening programmes quarterly as part of efforts to ensure good health of its workforce.

.......Hopefully, the rumour is all smoke and no fire as we've been assured.
