The Kwara state goverment on Thursday described the news circulating on social media indicating its readiness to implement the new minimum wage in October as falsehood, ROYAL NEWS reports
Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq’s Spokesman, Abdulrafiu Ajakaye, in a statement said: “The attention of the Office of the Chief Press Secretary has been drawn to a fake news circulating on the social media to the effect that the Kwara State Government will begin the implementation of the new Minimum Wage in October.
“The entire story is fake and should be disregarded. Our previous statements have made clear the position of the government on the minimum wage.”
Ajakaye further stressed that, “Those behind the latest statement, which they signed with the name of the CPS, are dangerous purveyors of fake news who would be dealt with once identified.
“This development, the second in about three weeks, is the height of recklessness and we are again calling on the security agencies to get to the roots of this evil of fake news.”
