Jigawa State Government says it has captured the N30,000 National Minimum wage in its 2019 budget.
This was stated by Governor Muhammad Badaru while addressing members of the organized labour during a protest on Tuesday over the federal government’s failure to present the bill to the parliament for implementation.
“We have made provision for the N30,000 New Minimum in 2019,” Mr Badaru stated.
The governor, who was represented by the state’s acting Head of Service, Husseini Kila, assured that the state’s civil servants would start enjoying the full minimum wage package, as soon as the National Assembly pass the bill into law.
In his reaction, state NLC chairman, Usman Ya’u, commended the governor for all the necessary support given to the civil servants in the state.
