May Day: Why Kwara will delay in paying N30, 000 new minimum wage – Gov. Ahmed

The Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has hinted on delay in implementing the new minimum wage for workers in the state.

Ahmed said the delay in the release of the “minimum wage template by the National Salary, Income and Wages Commission may stall early implementation of the new N30,000 minimum wage for the workers” in the state.

The governor made the disclosure while speaking during this year’s Workers’ Day celebration in Ilorin, the state capital, on Wednesday.

Represented by the state Head of Service, Mrs Modupe Oluwole, the governor stated that the minimum wage “template is the basic working tool which the 13-man committee set up by the government would use to determine new minimum wage that will be implemented.”

He said that the minimum wage reviewing committee constituted by the government was set up to enable workers to enjoy the new salary as soon as implementation commences.

Ahmed expressed the determination of his administration towards ensuring better welfare for workers in the state.

He also commended them and the labour leaders for maintaining a good working relationship with the state government.
