Edo gov Obaseki, labour sign N30,000 minimum wage pact

Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and the Joint Negotiating Council on Monday signed the new N30,000 national minimum wage document.

Obaseki  had  promised to pay  civil servants the new minimum wage beginning from  this month.

Speaking at the signing of the document at Government House in Benin, the governor  said  workers in the state would be paid on  January 26.

He said, “There should not be much difference between a state worker,a  federal  worker and a local government worker because it is the same government.”

Earlier, the Edo State Head of Service, Mr Issac Ehiozuwa, said the new minimum wage was unanimously agreed upon by all parties involved and along with the consequential adjustments.

 The  Chairman, Edo State chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress, Sunny Osanyande, commended the governor for prioritising the welfare of workers in the state. Punch
