The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had led the campaign for an upward review of minimum wage from N18,000 to N30,000.

In April, President Muhammadu Buhari signed the national minimum wage bill into law after it was passed by the senate.

In a statement on Thursday, Oguwike Nwachukwu, the governor’s spokesman, said Uzodinma granted approval for the implementation of the new minimum wage.

Nwachukwu said the governor had earlier assured union leaders that the payment will be made after negotiations are completed.

He said consequential adjustments on other levels will be implemented once negotiations are finalised.

“The Imo State Government led by Governor Hope Uzodinma has approved immediate implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage in the State Public Service for the least paid worker on Grade level 1 Step 1.
Consequential adjustments on other levels will be implemented as soon as the ongoing Government-Labour negotiations are concluded,” the statement read.

“It would be recalled that at a recent meeting Governor Uzodinma had with labour leaders in the State, he promised that he will pay the N30,000 minimum wage if all the negotiations with them are concluded.”
