Workers Celebrate Ugwuanyi Over Minimum Wage


Yesterday, civil servants in Enugu State trooped out to the streets to celebrate their Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

They later marched to the Government House, Enugu, where they met with the Governor.

Statesman Nigeria gathered that the workers came out on the streets to celebrate the payment of the new minimum wage by Gov Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. One of the leaders of the Organised Labour Union, Comrade Nwobodo, disclosed that the workers were surprised and elated to receive their salary alerts during the weekend reflecting the new minimum wage in line with the agreed consequential adjustment chart.

It was such an emotional event as the workers sang solidarity songs while also thanking Gov. Ugwuanyi for paying them the agreed new minimum wage during the weekend.

They displayed banners and placards with inscriptions such as: “Enugu State workers say Thank You His Excellency for the new minimum wage”, “Gburus, Enugu workers say Thank You for regular payment of salaries”, “Gburus, thank you for giving us new minimum wage without stress”, “Thank you for regular payment of monthly pensions”, “Gburus, you are a pacesetter”, Gburus is our man”.
