Gov Bello Inaugurates 17- Member Committee For Minimum Wage Implementation
Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 inaugurated a committee for the implementation of the ew minimum wage of N30,000 for workers in the state
The inauguration ceremony of the 17- member committee was held at the Banquet hall, Government House, Lokoja.
The governor appreciated the leadership of organised labour for their cooperation, patience, guidance and collaboration in setting a reformed civil service in the state.
Bello also commended workers for their understanding and for bearing whatever pain that came along with the reform system, adding that it was for the good and future of the state.
Bello, who was represented by his deputy, Chief Edward Onoja, affirmed that it was another step in the right direction where dialogue remained preferable to confrontation, hence the setting up of the committee.
He said, “It is to simply engage in dialogue, using fact and figure comparative analysis to be able to agree with terms that would guide both parties regarding the newly increased minimum wage for civil service in Nigeria to the tune of N30,000.”
