We Would Continue To Pay N18,000 Minimum Wage- Jigawa Governor

The Governor of Jigawa State,
Badaru Abubakar on Friday reassured workers in his State that he will not scrap
the N18,000 minimum wages as suggested by many governors.
Mr. Badaru gave the assurance in
an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse.
He said the state government would
continue to pay the N18, 000, as well as leave grants and other allowances due
to the workers in spite of dwindling revenue.
“I had interaction with the workers
last week. I promised to continue with the N18, 000 minimum wage. I also
promised to give them what we agreed upon as leave grant, that they have not
been enjoying for some time. We kept our promise this year and we intend to
continue next year,’’ the governor said.
