Governor Sanwo-Olu Approves Implementation Of N35,000 New Minimum Wage In Lagos State

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has officially approved the payment of N35,000 new minimum wage to workers under government’s employ beginning from this month.

A circular issued by the Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola on Wednesday, November 27th said Sanwo-Olu, in his determination to improve the welfare and wellbeing of public servants in Lagos State, had graciously approved the implementation of the new minimum wage with effect from 1st November, 2019.

The HOS said the salaries for the month of November was being delayed beyond the usual 23rd day cycle in order to adequately process payment of the new minimum wage. He said government had agreed to pay GL. 01-06=N35,000.09;. GL. 07=30%; GL. 08-10=25%; GL. 12-14=22.5% and GL. 15-17=20%.

According to Muri-Okunola, “kindly note that the payment of salaries for the month of November 2019 is delayed beyond the usual 23rd day cycle in order to adequately process payment of the new minimum wage.

The consequential increase of the new minimum wage in Lagos State for Senior and Management grade level is as follows: GL. 07=30%; GL. 08-10=25%; GL. 12-14=22.5% and GL. 15-17=20%.

“Accordingly, it should be noted that that approved minimum wage and consequential adjustments are more than the federal government’s approved recommendation, which further demonstrates this administration’s commitment to staff welfare.”

He, therefore, enjoined public servants to show more commitment, dedication and selflessness in the delivery of qualitative service to Lagosians.

“By this action, public servant are thus enjoined to show more commitment, dedication and selflessness in the delivery of qualitative service to the citizens of Lagos State, whose fulfillment of tax obligations largely contribute to payment of these salaries.

“In addition, public servants are expected to give unalloyed support to the state government’s agenda, as we collectively strive to actualise set goals,” he said.

    Very good. This will at least encourage Lagos State civil servants. As Sanwo Olu is awake implementing this, my State, Rivers government is deeply asleep on the matter. Infact they’ve swept it to the Atlantic ocean. Somebody help me ask Gove Wike what he is still doing about this matter. Shame to any of the Niger Delta states governors who say there is no money to implement the new minimum wage. Nonsense!!!!
