“Governor Ahmadu Fintiri has directed that payment of the new national minimum wage should commence from November, 2019.
This order covers state civil servants as well as local government employees,” the statement read. Governor Fintiri had promised to implement the new national minimum wage once the Federal Government concluded discussions on its consequential effect.
