The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has increased the minimum wage for workers in the state from N40,000 to N70,000.

The governor made the announcement at the inauguration of the newly built ultra-modern Labour House secretariat complex for labour unions in the state, along Temboga Road, Ikpoba-Hill, Benin City.

Obaseki said his administration would increase the new minimum wage for the state’s workers from N40,000 to N70,000.

He also promised to increase the monthly salary of workers to over N70,000 if the Federal Government approved a new minimum wage for its workers.

According to him, the details of the new minimum wage would be made known to the public during the celebration of this year’s Workers Day on Wednesday, May 1.
