NAN reports that Izam stated this Thursday in Jos at the 10th Quadrennial Delegate Conference of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM).

He, therefore, appealed for understanding from civil servants as they waited for the outcome of the deliberations.

He assured that Plateau would be among the first to implement the new minimum wage, as Gov. Simon Lalong is a member of the negotiations team.

The HOS also disclosed that the Governor had approved the promotion of 10,000 civil servants in the state.
