Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday announced the increase of the minimum wage in the state from N18, 000 to N25, 000 with immediate effect.

Speaking at the May Day celebration in the state, Oshiomhole also promised prompt payment of outstanding salary arrears to the staff of local government councils in the state. He said that plans had also been concluded to pay staff of Egor Local Government Council who were being owed 13 months’ salary arrears within the next two weeks.

Explaining why the council was omitted from the bailout to local government councils in 2015, he gave the assurance that the Edo government had been meeting with the Central Bank of Nigeria and that within the next two weeks, the funds would be released and staff of the council would be paid in full.

Earlier, the State Chairman of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Mr. Orhue Marshall, appealed to government to enlist workers in the state in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

According to him, this would enable them to have access to quick and cheap medical facilities, like their colleagues in the Federal Public Service.
