Lagos state government has said it will commence payment of the new minimum wage of N35,000 with effect from November.
This was contained in a circular dated 27th November 2019 addressed to heads of all Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, in the state and signed by the Head of Service, HOS, Hakeem Muri-Okunola.
The HOS said the payment of salary for the month of November is delayed beyond 23rd day circle in order to adequately process payment of the new wage.
“The consequentialincrease of the new minimum wagefor senior and management grade levels is as follows: GL 07: 30 per cent; GL 08-10: 25 per cent; GL 12-14: 22.5 per cent and GL 15-17: 20 per cent”, the HOS said.
He said the approved minimum wage and consequential adjustments are more than the Federal Government’s approved recommendation which further demonstrates the administrations commitment to staff welfare.
