Expect Sacking If We Must Pay N30,000 Minimum Wage, Governors Tell Labour

Nigerian governors have said they cannot afford to pay workers a minimum wage of N30,000 unless the organised labour wants its members to be sacked.

Apart from this, the governors at their emergency meeting in Abuja last night, asked the Federal Government to also accede to the review of the national revenue allocation formula.

The Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum who is also the Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, who read the communiqué after the meeting, said that a new committee would be raised to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over the issue.

He said the committee would work out another formula towards quickly resolving the problem associated with the proposed minimum wage.


  1. And it will affect other people means of livelihood

  2. Can't they reduced senators' salary to 10m and increase the wage to 50k? Polithieves that are doing nothing are earning more
