Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised to increase the salary of local government workers in the state.
The governor made this assurance during an interactive session with civil servants at the local government level on Monday. This meeting was held at the Adeyemi Bayero Auditorium within the Alausa Secretariat, in Ikeja.
“I as governor have promised to increase, no matter how small, the salary of the public servants,” he said.
“The market where the Alausa workers shop, that’s where you shop too. Your children go to the same school, you pay the same fare and all of us are from Lagos.
“I have told them and I have challenged them.
We are trying to see how we adjust so that one is not higher than the other.
So that we don’t disenfranchise anybody. You are all my people, my staff, you are all my citizens and I need to take care of you.
The development is coming just a few days before the governorship and House of Assembly elections.
