Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has pledged to pay the new minimum wage and consequential adjustments to workers of state-owned tertiary institutions next month.
This is contained in a statement by the Special Adviser on Education to the Governor, Mr. Tokunbo Wahab.
Academic and non-academic unions in Lagos State University (LASU) on Monday protested the non-implementation of the new minimum wage by shutting down the institution. It was scheduled to resume on Monday following a directive by the governor that tertiary institutions should resume.
“The government therefore expects that normalcy is sustained as we strive to ensure a guaranteed future for our students and the institutions.”
