The Kaduna state government on Friday announced N8,799 as the new minimum wage for its civil servants with immediate effect.

The State's Head of Service, Balarabe Yakubu announced this shortly after the State Executive Council Meeting in Kaduna.

"From Oct. 1, a level 01 step 1 worker in the state will now receive N8,799 as salary as against the former N6,960, showing a 26.42 per cent increase," he said.

Yakubu said that workers on level 17 would now receive N115,799 as against the former salary of N80,599 representing a 43.73 per cent increase.

The Head of Service said that more than 76,000 state and local government workers would benefit from the gesture.

The state would incur an additional N468 million commitment or an average increase of 30 per cent over the old salaries. A breakdown shows an additional expense of N128 million for the state, N75million for local government councils, while an additional monthly commitment of N266million would be made on salaries of Primary School Teachers in the state.

Kaduna has 86,000 workers made up of 23,000 state workers, 18,000 local government workers and 45,000 teachers on its payroll.
