Anambra state civil servants are to enjoy a new monthly minimum wage, as from July this year.
The state information commissioner, Don Adinuba, announced the proposed new wage while addressing newsmen at the end of the weekly meeting of the state executive council, at the Government House in Awka.

The new pay is coming ahead of the national minimum wage which is still being negotiated by tripartite committee set up by the federal government.
The commissioner explained that the state initially plans to pay the new wage as from April, but shift it to April to allow the negotiation of a new national minimum wage.Please subscribe to our newsletter
