Civil servants in Ebonyi state were Friday, thrown into jubilation as the state Governor, Engr Dave Umahi became one of the first Nigerian Governors to effect the payment of the N30,000 new minimum wage on January 10th.

It was reported that Civil Servants in the capital city of Ebonyi, Abakaliki, started recieving the N30,000 minimum wage on January 10, 2020.

The elated workers quickly caused long queues around all the the Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) within Abakaliki in their bid to access the new minimum wage after early morning alerts of their January salaries.

Ebonyi state has by this, taken the lead as one of the first states to comply with the Federal Government and Nigeria Labour Congress agreement for the new minimum wage of 30,000 Naira which was signed into inlaw by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 18, 2019.

Recall that after an Agreement was reached on the N30,000 Minimum wage by the tripartite committee on Minimum wage under the chairmanship of Amal Pepple, Nigerian Governors Forum, NGF under the leadership of the immediate past Governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari said it will not align with the agreement, alleging that the Forum was sidelined as the minimum wage was being negotiated.

Labour has however, refused to relent in their persistent call for governors and other stakeholders to respect the agreement which has become a law, calling on the state assemblies to impeach any governor that fails to comply with the agreement.

While many states have agreed to comply with the new N30,000 minimum wage bill, other states are yet to come up with their positions on the implementation of the minimum wage, hanging the fate of workers in a balance.
