Minimum Wage: Oshiomhole Tells APC Governors What To Do




The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has begged APC governors to implement the N30,000 minimum wage and the consequential adjustments.

The former Edo State Governor made this known on Monday at the Federal Government-Progressives Governors Forum parley in Jos.

Oshiomhole urged APC governors to kickstart payment before governors elected on the platform of other parties.

According to him, “As progressives, let us be the first to pay the new national minimum wage and not just the wage but also the consequential adjustments arising from it.

“Already, there are some proactive progressive governors that have taken steps to address this.

“I plead that you give this a priority because when other governors are fighting whether or not to pay, you will say that progressive governors have paid.

“Where there is will, there will certainly be a way.”

Oshiomhole also urged APC governors to back President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to shut down the country borders.

He said that the nation’s borders should remain closed until neighbouring countries follow the protocols of fair trade.
