Governor Obaseki Announces N70,000 Minimum Wage For Edo Workers

By Oke-Oghene Orogun, Benin City

The Edo State Government has increased the minimum wage payable to civil servants to N70,00O monthly.

The package approved by Governor Godwin Obaseki will come into effect from May 1, 2024.

Until the announcement as preparatory to the Workers’ Day celebration, Edo state had been paying N40,000 as minimum wage, N10,000 more than what many states were paying.

This is the second time Governor Obaseki has increased the minimum wage in the state.

The first time was around 2021 when he raised the minimum wage from N30,000 to N40,000.
