The state chairman of Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools, ASUSS, comrade Akeem Lasisi disclosed this during the World Teacher’s Day held at the M.K.O, Abiola International Stadium, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
He said ” our Excellency , in the spirit of this year’s World Teacher’s day and given your background and parentage, we are looking forward to receiving one heart – cheering piece of news from you, the announcement of the approval of the leave allowance in honour of Teachers who are poised to double their efforts in delivering their best for the state . The matter of the unpaid leave allowances has demoralised many of us up till today.If we leave this venue with that pronouncement, our joy will know no bounds.
