Civil servants in Lagos will have another reason to be happy as the state government has promised to pay three months’ arrears of the new minimum wage.
Making the promise on behalf of the state government was the Deputy Governor, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.
Speaking at the 2020 Annual First Working Day Thanksgiving Service for public servants in the state, Hamzat said government was doing this in appreciation of the commitment and contributions of workers to the realisation of the goals of the state government.
Hamzat also pleaded with the workers to ensure they cooperate with government in its programmes and projects for the state.
“ We are key to the success of Nigeria and Nigeria is the faith of the black race. So, we must be upright , do the right thing , obey traffic rules and other regulations,” he said.
