Governors to forgo security votes, other benefits, to pay new minimum wage

The National Working Committee, NWC, of Labour Party, LP, has advised the 36 State Governors to forgo their security votes and as well trim down the numbers of political appointees in order to ensure speedy implementation of the newly agreed minimum wage structure to civil servants.

The party also asked the governors to among other things,  reduce the level of stealing and corruption in their states in order to enhance their capacity to pay the salaries and stop giving embarrassing reasons for inability to pay the 30,000 naira  minimum wage.

National Chairman of Labour Party, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, who gave the  advice, while addressing newsmen at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, said review of the minimum wage for workers was long overdue.

The party also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to approve 30,000 naira  minimum wage as recommended by the tripartite committee.
