According to him, the pay rise from N18,000 to N25,000 is expected to take immediate effect.

“When the going gets tough, that is when the tough gets going and my movement, which is your movement, which is our movement has toughen me to stand when others are limping.

“And in consistency with my concept of non-lamentation, here this afternoon, beginning with effect from today, the least worker in Edo State, we will increase the salary from N18,000 to N25,000.”

“We will make sure that it is spread up and graduate it down. We will work out the details with the NLC such that even a director will get a salary increase,” he said.

He also promised to pay outstanding arrears to civil servants, particularly the staff of Egor Local Government Area within two weeks.
