Sanwo-Olu To Increase Civil Servants’ Salary

BREAKING: Sanwo-Olu Moves To Increase Civil Servants' Salary

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says his administration is working to raise salaries in the state civil service.

Sanwo-Olu stated this on Tuesday while speaking to employees at the state secretariat in Alausa, Ikeja.

The Governor acknowledged that the country’s high inflation may have impacted workers’ purchasing power.

He stated that Lagos state will not wait for the federal government to improve worker well-being.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said his administration is proactive to the yearnings of civil servants.

“I have looked around and I know that as a country, there is pressure. I know that, as a country, there is a high level of inflation.

“At our cabinet meeting, I instructed the head of service office and the ministry of staff, training, and pensions to start work on how we are going to increase the entire salary of our public servants,” the governor said.

The announcement comes just a few months before the general election in 2023.

Former Lagos governor Bola Tinubu is the ruling All Progressives Congress’ (APC) presidential candidate.
