UNILORIN male staff to enjoy paternity leave – Registrar


Mr Mansur Alfanla, Registrar of the University of Ilorin has said that male university staff will now be granted paternity leave.

Alfanla, who revealed this in Ilorin while chatting with journalists, said it is in the university’s recently amended Conditions of Service.

He added that the addition of paternity leave was one of the most significant enhancements to the university’s working conditions.

The Registrar further stated that the addition of paternity leave is consistent with modern workplace practices that recognized the need for work-life balance.

”Paternity Leave is for serving male officers whose spouse delivers a baby. The period of the leave shall be 14 working days.

“Where the family of a male officer adopts a child under four months old, the officer will similarly enjoy paternity leave for a period of 14 working days,” he said.

Alfanla underlined the importance of familiarising and carefully adhering to the updated conditions for university staff.
