We’ll Pay Minimum Wage From October – Lagos Govt

The Lagos State government has said it will begin to pay the new minimum wage to all tertiary institutions in the state from October.

This was announced in a statement signed by Tokunbo Wahab, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Education, after a meeting with the executives of unions in the tertiary institutions on Tuesday.

The meeting held after the unions protested in Lagos on Monday.

According to Wahab, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has pledged to commence payment of the new minimum wage/consequential adjustments to the tertiary institution workers.

The statement partly read: “Following a meeting of relevant stakeholders on the agitations for the implementation of the new minimum wage held on Tuesday 15, 2020, it is hereby notified that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has affirmed the state government’s commitment to paying the new minimum wage/consequential adjustments to all staff of all state-owned tertiary institutions with effect from October, 2020.

“Government therefore expects that normalcy is sustained as we collectively strive to ensure a guaranteed future for our students and the institutions.”
