As reported by Daily Trust, Mbah started the payments of the wage award of between N10,000 and N25,000 to state workers last December to cushion the effects of the fuel subsidy removal.

The governor said:

“Until the new minimum wage is concluded, we will continue to pay wage awards.”

Mbah disclosed that he has started clearing the arrears of pension and gratuity of retired civil servants he inherited from the previous administration, Premium Time reported.

“Today we are working seriously to clear that of primary school teachers and Local Government workers.”

The governor also pledged to design a programme to ensure students’ palliative and also sustain the Enugu state’s Scholarship Board.
