Hardship: Gov Alia to increase minimum wage in Benue

Governor Hyacinth Alia of Benue State has begun moves to increase minimum wage for workers.

A statement issued on Friday by the governor’s spokesman Tersoo Kula said the governor already constituted a committee to review the current minimum wage and make recommendations to the government.

He said the committee headed by the Secretary to the state government, with the Head of Service and several heads of MDAs as members will be collaborating with the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC.

According to Kula, the state government is not unaware of the economic crisis bedeviling citizens, stressing that the government is doing everything possible to alleviate the suffering.

“The committee has since held its inaugural meeting and will be collaborating with organized labour.

“The government of Benue state is conscious of the economic challenges the nation is experiencing and will do its best to provide its citizens succour in the prevailing circumstances,” the statement added.
