“Where is Edo State getting its money to confidently raise the minimum wage to 70k?”

Nigerians react

Legit captured some reactions from Nigerians on Edo state paying N70,000 minimum wage to state workers.


It’s a Greek gift because the Edo governorship election is 3 months away.


Edo state was also the first state to pay 40k 2 years ago before increasing it to 70k this year.


Any state in Nigeria can pay even more than 70k as minimum wage if they want to, but politicians greed and selfishness won’t allow them to do the needful, rather they give flimsy excuses to cover up there narratives.


Someone is tenure is ending in 3mths time is raising minimum wage to 70k. Who is fooling who!


The governor is just trying to create a problem for the incoming governor that’s all


I believe it may be beneficial to the country to consider merging non-performing states together


Check Edo IGR for the first quarter of the year and how much they proposed to spend

You will know

Edo is doing well


Sir I put it to you that the Election by the corner built the “confidentiality raise”.


They need

Edo people’s vote desperately after an underwhelming performance in governance.
