Governor El-Rufai Commended For Being First To Pay The New N30 Minimum Wage

A former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has commended the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai for being the first Nigerian State Governor to implement the N30, 000 Federal Minimum Wage.

According to Eze, 

“I must confess that I am motivated and encouraged by Governor El-Rufai’s boldness and urge him, for the benefit, development and emancipation of our people, to organise a seminar on behalf of the remaining 35 state governors of the federation, which if approved I, Eze, am ready to contribute to enable the ‘Peoples’ Governor’ to lecture them on the possible implementation of this policy, even while most of them are owing several months of salaries to their civil servants under the 18,000 minimum salary scale.
“I learnt that this was possible following the approval by the State Executive Council sometime in August. I therefore rejoice with the employees of Kaduna state government who have begun receiving salary alerts for the month of September already, thereby making the state the first to begin implementation in the country”, he said



Quoting a beneficiary-civil servant of Kaduna state by the name Zubairu Bello, a Grade Level 10 officer, Eze depicted the delight now being expressed by employees of the state government. According to him, Bello said he received the alert of N65,500, representing a N25,500 increase from the N40,000 he receives monthly as salary.
“I am so happy with this development, because now I can comfortably feed my family, pay school fees and make some savings. I want to thank El-Rufa’i for the gesture. This is a proof of his administration’s commitment on putting people first”, Bello had said.
