Just this evening, the Executive Governor of Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike has graciously approved the payment of the Thirty Thousand Naira (#30) Monthly Minimum Wage as agreed between the NLC and the Federal Government of Nigeria.
This was contained in a statement released through the state’s Commissioner for Information, Mr. Paulinus Nsirim on 16th January, 2020 as directed by the governor.
The statement reads: “His Excellency, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has graciously approved the payment of the minimum wage of N30,000 monthly salary for employees of the Rivers State Public Service with the consequential salary adjustments as approved by the Federal Government”.
This therefore means, from January ending, the workers in Rivers State will start receiving their salaries with addition of the Minimum Wage.
