Zamfara govt begins payment of minimum wage, pays June salary ahead of Eid celebration


Governor of Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal has commenced the payment of thirty thousand naira (N30,000) minimum wage to the state’s civil servants.

In a statement issued on Friday in Gusau, the governor’s spokesperson, Sulaiman Bala Idris, disclosed that Zamfara civil servants started receiving their June salary on the 12th June ahead of the Eid-el- Adha celebration.
