Godwin Obaseki

The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said that the state government will pay government workers salaries on June 14 ahead of the Sallah celebrations.

The governor said this during the inauguration of the state secretariat complex on Wednesday, in Benin City, the state capital.

The governor, who recently raised the minimum wage in the state from N30,000 to N70,000, said,  “I have heard all the accolades about the minimum wage. I assure the workers that it is not a fluke. We are a very deliberate government that sits back to do our work. You know that for the seven and a half years since we came into office, we have paid salaries on the 26th of every month.

“In cases where we have holidays, we pay our workers before the holidays so they have money to celebrate. In that same guise, we will be paying the salaries for June on Friday, 14th of June, ahead of the sallah celebration to enable you to have a good sallah.”
