Lagos State Government has assured all tertiary institutions in the state the payment of new minimum wage with effect from October.
This is coming after all the executives of the unions met with the Lagos State Government on Tuesday.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Education, Tokunbo Wahab, made it known that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had pledged to commence payment of the new minimum wage.
According to him, the increment will also influence the consequential adjustments to the tertiary institution workers.
“Following a meeting of relevant stakeholders on the agitations for the implementation of the new minimum wage held on Tuesday 15, 2020, it is hereby notified that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has affirmed the state government’s commitment to paying the new minimum wage/consequential adjustments to all staff of all state-owned tertiary institutions with effect from October 2020.
“Government therefore expects that normalcy is sustained as we collectively strive to ensure a guaranteed future for our students and the institutions,” the statement read in part.
