Ekiti to begin payment of N30,000 minimum wage October

Abiodun Nejo, Ado Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, said on Saturday that workers in Ekiti State would begin to receive the N30,000 minimum wage from October 2019.
Fayemi said the payment was to motivate workers, especially teachers, to be able to deliver the best to the state and reclaim the lost glory and pride of being the education nerve centre of the country.
The governor, who spoke amidst loud ovations from the teachers and public servants in attendance at the 2019 World Teachers’ Day celebration at Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti, however, tasked teachers to strive for the realisation of the bid to return the state to a leading position in education.

He said, “We will commence payment of N30,000 minimum wage to workers in Ekiti with effect from this month. We are determined to reward diligence because the workers, particularly our teachers, have done the state proud.”
Fayemi, who reiterated the determination of his administration to protect and preserve the core values of making Ekiti the nation’s education capital, said that he decided to establish more schools in Ado Ekiti to decongest schools in the capital city and make learning more conducive.
The governor said, “The only way we can reclaim our lost glory in education is to encourage our teachers in and outside service. I will promote functional and technical education in this state.”
Fayemi said that the ongoing recruitment of over 2000 teachers into the public primary and secondary schools was part of the mission of the administration to safeguard the future of the state.
He said, “I have also ensured that all students of school age are in schools in line with Education Law which makes basic education compulsory and in line with global best practice.
“In this year’s West African Examination Council senior school certificate examination, Ekiti was ranked 12th. I want to salute our teachers, but that is not where Ekiti belong, we must continually do more to rise to number one”,
