The Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, on Wednesday promised to commence the implementation of the new N30,000 minimum wage for workers in the state.
He stated this at a two-day retreat for political appointees in the state held at Akwanga Local Government Area of the state.
Sule said the decision followed the agreement that had been reached on the consequential adjustment for workers on grade levels 7 to 17, adding that the state would soon commence the process for the implementation.
The governor said the minimum wage “is a law” that must be obeyed.
The governor said: “We will engage the organised labour in the state on the consequential adjustment for levels 7 to 17 civil servants as soon as we get the temple from the relevant organs of the Federal Government.
“But the adjustment will be determined by our allocation from the Federation Account and accrual from the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).
“We would be very open to the unions and the public in our transaction so that together we would agree on the adjustment based on our financial capacity.”
