Good times are here for teachers in Ekiti state.

The sum of 190 million naira has been approved as vehicle and housing loans to 751 teaching and non-teaching staff in the secondary schools.

The Chairman, Ekiti Teaching Service Commission, Abiodun Falayi, announced this in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday.

He said that 468 workers received between N100,000 to N300,000 as land/housing loans, depending on their salary grade levels.

According to him, another 283 personnel received between N80,000 to N750,000 as vehicle loans, depending on their salary grade levels.

He assured workers that the special welfare scheme would be continuous.

Falayi charged beneficiaries of the loans to utilise the facility judiciously, and cautioned them against diverting it to activities that would not add value to their lives.

He stressed the need for workers to continually support the efforts of government to improve their welfare, pointing out that it would be difficult to achieve set targets without such support and dedication to service delivery.

In addition to this, a total of 6,000 teaching and non-teaching staff were recently promoted.
