Sanwo-Olu Says He Will Pay Above N30,000 Minimum Wage If Elected Gov Of Lagos State

Ahead of the gubernatorial election in Lagos, All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised workers in the state of his administration readiness to pay above the N30,000 minimum wage benchmark as well formulate policies to improve their welfare if elected.






Sanwo-Olu, accompanied by his deputy, Dr, Obafemi Hamzat, made the promise Thursday, while addressing civil servants at state Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja.


According to Sanwo-Olu: “As part of the motivation, we will take the minimum wage above the level presented at the National Assembly. And the payment will not exceed the 23rd of every month. This is part of the welfare package we have for civil servants in Lagos.


“We will also ensure a car package for senior staffs that have attained directors’ status in the public service. We cannot allow workers that are required to stay back and work to start looking for bus to convey them home at night.


“On the staff bus, I discovered that civil servants now pay to repair the vehicle. When elected, our administration will replace the rickety vehicles for the staff. All these, we believe would motivate the staff to deliver in every task they have been mandated to do.”


While responding to complaint from workers, Sanwo-Olu assured that his administration, if elected, would restore local and international training benefit to the State public service.


He added: “We cannot give you tool alone without training because they accompany each other. It is when we have done that the government can have an effective public service that drives the policies.


“This we believe will make the workers have the required skill to perform the task of taking Lagos to greater height. And it will be considered an important issue by our administration.”


Sanwo-Olu disclosed that his administration, when elected, would establish a platform for retired civil servants to act as volunteer workers, saying, we always have some civil servants that are still active but due to the public service barrier on age, they leave service.


“Some of these retired workers have acquired skills over the years. The retirement has barred them from further rendering their service to the state but they are active. So, we cannot allow them take that skill away. This is why we have concluded that when we are elected, such plan would be implemented in the state.”


Aside the welfare for workers, the APC candidate disclosed that his government would complete all existing projects especially the Lagos-Badagry Expressway which serve as a major entry route for foreigners from Western African countries visiting the country.

    3. For the past 20 years, NO body knows how APC spend the monies accruing to the state, No transparency, monumental looting taking place !!!!! In Lagos currently, hardly can you see a 3 bedroom flat for N500k per year ( N42k per month) , Minimum wage in Lagos should NOT be less than N80k per month!!!!!!!! Sanwolu, why now ???????? You hand all the time for all this instead you and Tinubu decided to play ethnic based politic, trying to force non indigenes to vote for you ***AT GUN POINT**** as GOD lives you can NEVER be Governor in Lagos, as Long as you are from Tinubu !!!!!!!!!!! I would have thought that after the NON indigenes helped Tinubu, Fasholaand Ambode gain power in Lagos , the best thing for you people to do would have been to play politics of inclusiveness, make oon indigenes commissions, make them part of government, let leadership be about competence and quality, and NOT the current qualification ;*** Tinubu's CHOSEN **** I was born in Lagos , schooled in Lagos, do my businesses in Lagos, but after the **Agbero** stunts you people pulled in Lagos last week and are still insisting that non Indigenes MUST vote for you, even when our Constitution gave all rights to vote for one's choice!!!!!!!! YOU sir lost my vote !!!!!!!

    5. @Anon 08:38,i wonder when people will get it into their thick skulls that in Nigeria, the electorate is just to add numbers, the umpires are the people that will decide. I believe Teejay made that quote from some foreign dude. Vote P.D.P or U.D.D or any other party, A.P.C will still win! Rigged, Manipulated, or snatched, the results declaring A.P.C as the winner is already out. And which state Governor in the history of Nigeria has ever accounted for their spending? Don't let silly sentiments blind you...be realistic, this is how we do it in Nigeria!

  16. Chief Bode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has cautioned the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, against what he described as the harassment of Igbo residents in Lagos. George said the action of the APC National Leader could trigger another civil war. In a statement he personally signed and made available to reporters on Wednesday, George frowned at the recent use of thugs, hired urchins and low-lives allegedly used to harass and unleash mayhem on the people of the South East in Lagos. .He added, “This clearly ill-advised jungle justice on fellow Nigerians whose offense is basically the fact that they voted according to their conscience is capable of provoking a reprisal attack and a greater cataclysm that may graduate into a fury that no one would be able to control. “Since yesterday I have been talking to various stakeholders from the South East to be restrained and calm and not to let the unfortunate incident widen into another violent scenario that may consume the nation itself. “I am appealing to President Buhari to call Bola Tinubu to order lest his reckless penchant of mobilizing thugs against all perceived enemies does not ricochet into the tragedies of 1962 and 1963 which eventually triggered the Nigerian Civil war. “Lagos is a mini Nigeria. It is the most accommodating and the friendliest entity in the Nigerian space. We welcome everyone with vivid embrace and with sincerity of purpose.

    1. Oga Bode is just talking to win Igbo votesa. As usual some idiots will believe all these trash talks! Oga Bode is the most disliked P.D.P fellow in the whole of Lagos. What people don't know is that, within the P.D.P ranks we have A.P.C moles! Deji Dorothy was side lined after investing massively in P.D.P pre this coming election. I don't see P.D.P making any head way in Lagos. Politics is about money, P.D.P don't have the funds, even if you bring in cash, their leaders are too hungry and selfish to distribute to their members. As usual, A.P.C will carry the day.

    2. @stan , here we go again !!!!!! To you politic is about money !!!!!! Very funny guy, so because APC has money, they will carry the day bah !!!!! I thought you people said that Lagos has the ** Most advanced electorate*** ???????? Do you really think that the bag of rice that sanwolu gave to Lagos works will make him carry the day or the N300 million he gave to Igbo's will make him carry the day !!!!!! ??????????? @Stan I now know you underestimate **The Lagos Voters ***** if you are equating us with the ***Almajiri Voters*** in Knano, Kaduna, Bornu or Yobe state then you people have miscalculated !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Before the presidential elections , do you still remember the number of Bullion vans Tinubu gave out ??????? If really money can change the game , why did he release his fogs ( agberos) ???????????????? Which is the greatest mistake Tinubu will ever make as this singular factor has made Lagosians more determined to Tinubu does not rule Lagos again through his poppet ; sanwolu !!!!!!!!! Have a nice day!!!!!!! If you more lectures, I will be glad to offer it free of change without money changing hands !!!!!!!

    3. @stan,the Tinubu we all ( by all I mean Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, and other Nigerians resident in Lagos ) voted for in 1999 and 2003 is NOT the same Tinubu today!!!!!!!!!!! That Tinubu got total love from all in Lagos because, he stood by the Constitution !!!!!!!!!!!! We have rejected the Tinubu who sent **agberos ** to throw stones, broken bottles at us as well as shot us with guns, all in a bid to intimidate us!!!!!! We refuse to be intimidated !!!!!!

  17. One day na one day, Tinubu reign in Lagos will come to an end. just like Bukola Saraki, no one stays in power for life.
