Dr. Ayandele, who recalled that the District had the best WAEC results among other Education Districts in the State in Y2020, stated that such feat would not have been achieved without the support and teamwork displayed by the retired officers.

According to her, the teaching profession has taught the retirees resilience, creativity and contentment, just as the retired officers contributed immensely to humanity and made positive changes among the leaders of tomorrow while they were in active service.

She advised the retirees to remain relevant in their immediate communities and be available for the State government and their communities whenever the need arises.

The TG/PS also commended the Lagos State Government and the Office of the Head of Service for the immense support over the years in the area of the welfare of both serving and retired officers.

The representative of the Public Service Office, Mrs. Rasheedat Olatunji, acknowledged the efforts of the Tutor-General/Permanent Secretary for setting a good precedent for others in the area of professionalism and commitment to duty.

She enlightened the retirees about various benefits and post retirement plans already put in place by the Public Service Office, including the acquisition of different skills for interested retirees.

Responding, Mr. Olukayode Kazeem, who spoke on behalf of other retirees, appreciated the Lagos State Government and also made an appeal for prompt payment of their retirement benefits.

Recall that the Last Day in Office is a yearly programme for retirees exiting Lagos State Service statutorily, but Education District III postponed the event because of the spike in COVID-19 last year.

The Commander, U.S. Africa Command, U General Stephen Townsend, wrapped up a three-day West African visit February 22-25, 2021, with a stopover in Nigeria to meet with the nation’s leaders and further the long-standing partnership and security cooperation between the two countries.

A press statement by the Embassy on Friday, said: “During the visit, Townsend met with the Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, and National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno, to discuss regional security issues and to express the command’s gratitude for the assistance provided during a hostage rescue operation last year.

“When we asked for their help, the Nigerian government answered the call. Our hostage recovery mission in October would have been impossible without their support.

“They quickly provided assistance that helped the U.S. military to save an American life. That is a strong example of our partnership with Nigeria.”

Townsend also met with senior military officials, including the Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magash, and the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, to talk about on-going cooperation in the region and greater maritime security and threat mitigation.

Nigeria is a key partner in countering violent extremist organizations throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

Townsend said furthermore: “The bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the U.S. is built on several pillars including security cooperation.

“U.S. Africa Command will do our part to advance the security cooperation pillar, so that Nigerians can enjoy the more secure future they all deserve.”

As close partners, the U.S. and Nigeria have worked at ensuring the collaborative relationship continues to grow to include a commitment to interoperability. Nigeria purchased 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, which will be delivered later this year.

“Nigeria’s purchase of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft is another example of their commitment to interoperability and security in the region,” he added. “Our economic relationship with Nigeria is already strong, and we look forward to the continued strengthening of security relationships. Nigeria’s leaders understand the importance of a collaborative approach to ensuring stability in West Africa and partnering on areas of mutual interest.”

The Commander also met with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Leonard said: “General Townsend’s visit to Nigeria demonstrates the strategic importance the United States places on our bilateral relationship with Nigeria.

“Our security cooperation partnership with Nigeria’s military will strengthen the country’s capabilities to secure land and sea borders, enhance overall security, and combat terrorism in the North East.”

As part of the visit, Townsend participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Nigeria Military National Cemetery to honour those who have given their lives in the service of their nation.

During the visit, the delegation expressed their condolences for the seven service men killed in the crash of a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Abuja.
