The University of Ilorin on Monday approved fourteen days paternity leave to its male members of staff.
This was made known by the university’s Registrar, Mr Mansur Alfanla, while addressing newsmen, noting that the development followed the just amended Conditions of Service of the varsity as part of the ways to improve the varsity’s working conditions.
According to him, the leave lasts for fourteen working days for male officers whose partner delivers a baby, adding that any male officer that adopts a child under four months old will similarly enjoy paternity leave.
”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,” Alfanla said.
