Gov Ortom orders implementation of new minimum wage for civil servants
The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has directed the State Head of Service to immediately commence the implementation of N30,000 minimum wage for civil servants on grade levels one to six.
It will be recalled that the State Government had reached an interim agreement a few months ago on payment of N30,000 minimum wage to civil servants on grade levels one to six.
The Governor gave the directive in a statement made available by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase on Tuesday.
The Governor also appreciated the labour union leaders for their understanding and reaffirmed his commitment to the implementation of the agreement.
He, however, assured Benue workers that the present administration will continue to give priority to their welfare while addressing other challenges of development.
