The Ondo State House of Assembly has bill passed into law pegging the retirement age of professors in tertiary institutions at 70.
It would become law once assented by the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu in the days ahead.
The bill also put the retirement age of other teaching and non- teaching staff at 65.
Spokesperson for the Assembly, Sehinde Fanokun, disclosed this through a statement in Akure, the state capital, on Monday.
He stressed that the executive bill, which has become a law, would take effect immediately.
Fanokun said beneficiaries of the amended law would now include workers in state-owned tertiary institutions.
