Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai , says state governments should be allowed to implement the proposed new minimum wage based on their income.

El-Rufai made the remark at the 2018 National Peer Learning event organised by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, (NGF) stating that the new minimum wage should not be under the Federal Government.

The governor, who also stated that personal income tax should be collected by the states, emphasised the need for amendments in the constitution so that some items can be removed in favour of the states.
