Lagos Govt Justifies Salary Increment, Says Not Casual Political Tools

Lagos State Government has revealed the planned workers’ pay rise by the state Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is not a causal political tool to win the 2033 elections.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu had earlier approved a 25 per cent rise as salary for its workers in the state on Tuesday. The announcement was well welcomed with jubilation by it workers

Mr Gbenga Omotosho Who is the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, on Friday disclosed to the newsmen in Ikeja, Lagos state that the state workers deserved the pay rise in their salaries as part of efforts to appreciate their job well-done amidst the harsh economic inflation in the country.

According to him “The governor is saying that we appreciate the services you are providing and although things are so hard, you are still carrying on and you are putting smiles on the faces of Lagosians who are coming to government offices.

“No matter how low or high the percentage may be, I think the symbolism is that at this particular time, Mr Governor feels that workers deserve a raise and he has pronounced it. If you listen to him very well, he said he had instructed the Office of Head of Service, Establishment, State Treasury Office to come together to look at these and see what the numbers are and see how we can go, but that workers will now have a pay rise is a foregone conclusion.

“I think the whole world is hailing him for doing that but if people are now saying it is for political reasons, let other people in positions of authority also do so for political reasons and raise salaries.”

Gbenga Omotosho made references to the other infrastructural projects going on in the state, and told the newsmen that they will be inaugurated by the state government before the year runs out.

He furthered “We have over 30 schools for us to be inaugurated. We also have housing projects to be inaugurated before the end of the year, and jetties are also included. We are building the infrastructure for the Blue line Rail system that will take passengers from Marina to Mile 2,”
