The governor of the state of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, officially approved the payment of N35,000 new minimum wage to workers working in the government as of this month.

Latest Nigeria newspaper report that The approval was contained in a circular issued by the Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, on Wednesday.

The circular stated that Sanwo-Olu, in its determination to improve the welfare and well-being of public servants in the state of Lagos, has kindly approved the implementation of the new minimum wage effective as of November 1, 2019.

HOS said that salaries for the month of November were being delayed beyond the usual 23-day cycle to properly process the payment of the new minimum wage.

Latest Nigeria newspaper report that He said the 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, “keep in mind that the payment of wages for the month of November 2019 is delayed beyond the usual 23-day cycle to properly process the payment of the new minimum wage. The consequent increase in the new minimum wage in the state of Lagos for the upper level and management level is as follows: GL. 07 = 30%; GL. 08-10 = 25%; GL. 12-14 = 22.5% and GL. 15-17 = 20%.

“Consequently, it should be borne in mind that the minimum wage approved and the consequent adjustments are more than the recommendation approved by the federal government, which further demonstrates the commitment of this administration to the welfare of the staff.”

Therefore, he ordered public servants to show more commitment, dedication and disinterest in the provision of qualitative services to the lakes.

“By this action, public servants are obliged to show more commitment, dedication and disinterest in the provision of qualitative services to the citizens of the state of Lagos, whose compliance with fiscal obligations contributes greatly to the payment of these salaries.

“In addition, public servants are expected to provide full support to the state government’s agenda, while we collectively strive to update established goals,” he said.
