Approve N200,000 minimum wage for workers – NNPP chieftain tells Tinubu

A chieftain of New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has advised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to approve N200,000 as the minimum wage for workers.

Oguntoyinbo noted that the current minimum wage cannot sustain the workers.

The NNPP chieftain said this in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday.

Oguntoyinbo while felicitating with workers on the occasion of this year’s Workers Day, also called on the state governors across the country to make workers’ welfare their priority.

The NNPP chieftain maintained that without adequate contribution of workers, no nation can reach its desired standard.

Oguntoyinbo said that the improved livelihood of Nigerian workers was sacrosanct and must remain a top priority of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

“As a friend of the Labour, I share in your joy and wish you a successful celebration devoid of violence and rancour.

“I also use this occasion to reiterate my call to our President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to approve a minimum wage of N200,000 for our workforce.

“The reality of today has shown us that the current minimum wage cannot sustain the least workers in the country,” he stated.
