I Will Pay More Than N30k Minimum Wage, Right All Ambode’s Wrongs – Sanwo-Olu Promises

 

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress at the forthcoming gubernatorial election, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has disclosed that his government, if voted into power, will pay above the stipulated N30,000 as minimum wage.

Sanwo-Olu made this call during his meeting with Lagos State Civil Servants at the Secretariat, Alausa Ikeja on Thursday, February 28th. He also added that he will improve the welfare of workers in the State.

In his address, Sanwo-Olu assured the civil servants that he would restructure the salary steps and also promised to replace staff buses which are currently rickety and being serviced by money contributed by staff.

As part of the motivation, we will take the minimum wage above the level presented at the National Assembly. And the payment will not exceed the 23rd of every month. This is part of the welfare package we have for civil servants in Lagos.

“We will also ensure a car package for senior staff that have attained directors’ status in the public service. We cannot allow workers that are required to stay back and work to start looking for bus to convey them home at night.

On the staff bus, I discovered that civil servants now pay to repair the vehicle. When elected, our administration will replace the rickety vehicles for the staff. All these, we believe would motivate the staff to deliver in every task they have been mandated to do,” he added.

Sanwo-Olu further said his administration, if elected, would restore local and international training benefit to the State public service.

We cannot give you tool alone without training because they accompany each other. It is when we have done that the government can have an effective public service that drives the policies. This, we believe will make the workers have the required skill to perform the task of taking Lagos to greater height and it will be considered an important issue by our administration,” he said.
