Southern Nigerian state increases minimum wage, approves three days work week.

The government of Nigeria’s South-South state of Edo State on Tuesday expressed its empathy with the citizens over the removal of petrol subsidy which has led to an increase in the price of goods and services.

Nigeria’s new President Bola Tinubu announced on his inauguration day that subsidy is ‘gone’ adding Nigeria can no longer afford it.

The state governor, Godwin Obaseki, stated said that civil and public servants in the state (which is 410km away from the Capital Abuja) would work three days a week as against five days due to the rise in transportation.
