In a statement, Commissioner for Communications and Orientation, Hon. Chris Nehikhare, said, “The Edo State Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has paid June salary of workers and pensions in.

“This is in line with the government’s long-standing practice of meeting its salary obligations before the 26th of every month and to enable our Muslim brothers and sisters to have a good Sallah celebration.”

He reassured that the government would continue to prioritize the welfare of workers and pensioners in the State, noting that the holistic reforms in the public and civil service in the State have made Edo the most attractive public employer in Nigeria.

According to him, “Civil and public servants in Edo State have continued to promptly get payment of their salaries, even after raising the State’s minimum wage from N40,000 to N70,000, the highest in the country.
