Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `amp_init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `schema-and-structured-data-for-wp` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

We Planned Three Years Ago for ₦70, 000 Minimum Wage – Obaseki, To Set Up Transition C’ttee Ahead of Exit

Labour House Commissioning by Godwin Obaseki

While majority of his counterparts in other states are still vacillating over paying their workforce a living wage in the face of soaring cost of living in the country, Governor, Godwin Obaseki, who on May Day announced a 70, 000 minimum wage for public servants in the state, disclosed on Wednesday that the state government made plans for the new wage three years ago when the telltale signs began to show that the economy was going in the wrong direction.

The governor also disclosed that he would be setting up in the course of the week, his transition team that would aggregate and document for the next administration all the achievements, projects, and undertakings for his administration.

The governor spoke on Tuesday after receiving an ‘Award for Exceptional Courage in Leadership’ presented to him at the Government House, Benin City, by the Editorial Board of Tell Magazine.

He said that the state made the plans for the increase in minimum wage when he started raising the alarm on the excessive borrowings by the Federal Government to meet its statutory obligations.

According to him, “We are able to pay the 70, 000 minimum wage because we planned ahead in the last three years because we knew a day like this would come. Thank God that we have been vindicated today, as our sincerity has helped us prevail over every situation. We see prospects for a better economy and transparent government in Edo State because of the institutional reforms we have introduced to better manage the state.”

According to him, “We have always prevailed because the majority of Edo people understand, appreciate and endorse what our government has done. This has been the reason for the courage with which we have tackled any problem we faced along the way.”

Noting that the state was on a steady growth trajectory, he said: “For the next few months that are left for our administration, we will finish strong. We will finish all that we have started. This week, I will set up my transition team that will aggregate and document for the next administration all our achievements, projects and undertakings for our administration”.
