Atiku asks Buhari to fulfil promise on minimum wage

2019: We are neither for Buhari nor Atiku - British govt

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the N30,000 new minimum wage approved for workers is achieved.

Atiku in a statement on Tuesday night by its Presidential Campaign Organisation said the new arrangement between the federal government, the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) was a welcome development.

“No sacrifice is too great to make for us to Get Nigeria Working Again and that is what the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation is all about. Atiku means JOBS; jobs that would pay the minimum wage and above because Nigeria should benefit the masses and not those who are in top government positions.

“The Nigerian worker is the goose that lays the golden egg and is worthy of the best pay that Nigeria can afford, ” he said.
