Taking steps to alleviate the impact of this policy change, the Edo State Government has implemented measures to support workers and reduce commuting expenses.

In a statement, Governor Obaseki announced that the minimum wage for workers in Edo State has been increased from the approved national rate of N30,000 to an impressive N40,000.

This adjustment positions Edo State as the highest paying state in Nigeria, demonstrating the government’s commitment to the welfare of its workforce.

Governor Obaseki further assured workers that the increased wage would be sustained, and there are plans to potentially raise it even further if the state receives additional funds from the Federal Government due to expected savings from the fuel subsidy removal.

In light of the rising transportation costs caused by the fuel price hike, the Edo State Government has taken another proactive measure to alleviate the burden on civil and public servants.

Governor Obaseki emphasized the government’s commitment to supporting the workforce and stated that these measures were implemented to help workers cope with the increased cost of living.

By adopting a flexible work schedule, the Edo State Government aims to lessen the financial burden on employees and create a conducive environment for productivity.

With the increase in minimum wage and the introduction of remote work options, Edo State sets an example for other states in Nigeria, showcasing a commitment to supporting employees and adapting to the changing economic landscape.
