The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, has called for the review of relevant civil service laws to address the lacuna bothering on the death of a staff on the eve of retirement.
Oloyede made the call in Abuja at the retirement ceremony held in honour of 24 staff of the board who have attained the compulsory retirement age of 35 years of service.
He lamented that the current laws on retirement leave a lacuna such that if a staff dies on the eve of his retirement, he would not be entitled to even a posthumous check of retirement benefits.
Responding on behalf of the retirees, Dr Haliru Bakori, thanked the board and management for honouring them; as well as their co-staff for being part of the journey through their years of service to the country.
Bakori prayed for those still in service that they would also retire hale and hearty.
