Following the recent assent by President Muhammadu Buhari, some state governments have agreed to pay the N30,000 national minimum wage.
The Nation reports that some of these states including Kano, Zamfara, Kwara, Rivers, Kogi and Edo states have agreed to pay the new minimum wage of N30,000.
In Kano state, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, assured the people of the state that his administration will give priority to the welfare of civil servants in the state.
He also said that it is for this reason that the state government is not owning its workers in Kano.
“We are ready to pay N30,000 monthly salary, because the welfare of our workers is paramount to anything and we will always give it. We will pay the N30,000,” Ganduje said.
