Borno State Government began the payment N30,000 minimum wage to civil servants in the state.
The Chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Mr. Bulama Abiso, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in Maiduguri.
Abiso said that the organised labour in the state appreciated the Governor, Babagana Zulum, for keeping to his pledge that workers’ welfare is his priority.
He said the minimum wage and its consequential adjustments were implemented to all grade level and consolidated salary structures across the state civil servants.
He then urges all civil servants to reciprocate the gesture by re-dedicating themselves to duty and assure them that all shortfalls due to implementation will be squarely looked into.
Mr. Ali Goni, a civil servant who spoke to newsmen in an interview, expressed joy after he received his new and enhanced salary.
