Breaking Gov.Obaseki increases minimum wage to N40,000 for workers

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has approved N40,000 new minimum wage for workers in the state.

Obaseki announced this while delivering his 2022 Workers Day speech on Sunday.

He assured workers that his Government would prioritise their welfare and enhance their capacity to deliver quality service.

The governor explained that N30,000 can barely sustain workers in the state, hence the increment.

Obaseki said his Government can not continue to pretend that workers in the state are suffering.

He expressed hope that the increment would help cushion the effect of inflation.

The governor, however, admitted that the increment would place a financial burden on his Government.

The Government of Edo has now decided to review the minimum for Edo workers from N30,000 to N40,000 a month.

Undoubtedly, Edo is the first state since the current outbreak of coronavirus to take this initiative.

Even though we would have loved to pay more, we hope that this little adjustment would enable us to cushion the impact of the inflation that we are faced with.”

Recently, the Nigerian Government increased workers’ minimum wage to N30,000.
