Must read

A chieftain of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has declared that the current minimum wage cannot sustain workers in the country.

Oguntoyinbo while speaking, advised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to approve N200,000 as the minimum wage for workers in the country.

Oguntoyinbo noted that this is necessary in order to improve the living conditions of the workers across the country.

The NNPP chieftain made these declarations via 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 while speaking further, maintained that the improved livelihood of Nigerian workers is sacrosanct and must remain a top priority of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

“I rejoice with Nigeria workers on the occasion of this year’s Workers Day. I salute your resilience, dedication, innovation and more importantly the sacrifice you are making for our dear country in the face of current hardship.

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

“I also used this occasion to reiterate my call to our President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to approve a minimum wage or 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.

Amb. Ajadi who was the Ogun state NNPP governorship candidate in the 2023 election and a successful entrepreneur also said, “Our governors should put the welfares of workers in the front burner in their various states. They should think on daily basis how to improve the conditions of workers in their states”.
