‘There’ll be no peace for any govt that doesn’t pay 35k minimum wage’ —Oshiomhole

The senator representing Edo North Senatorial district in the National Assembly, Adams Oshiomhole, has predicted that there would be no peace for government at any level, be it state or local, that refuses to implement the Federal Government’s N35,000 grant for civil servants.

The former Edo State governor who made the assertion when he appeared on Channels Television political programme, Sunday Politics, said the provisional wage award by the President Bola Tinubu-led administration should be implemented by government at all levels, as well as the private sector.

“The Federal Government approved N35,000 increase on top of current wage levels. But I’m yet to understand why any Nigerian state government or governor is not implementing that agreement,” Oshiomole, a former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), said.
