“I Cannot Pay N30,000 Minimum Wage” – Oyo State Governor-Elect, Seyi Makinde

The Oyo state governor-elect, Seyi Makinde, has said the state cannot pay the new national minimum wage of N30,000 just signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari. Makinde in a report in Tribune published on Wednesday, May 1, said the federal governments should have allowed states to negotiate the new minimum wage for their workers as the condition of living varies from state to state. Makinde told reporters in Abuja after attending the induction programme for returning and newly elected governors that he intends to negotiate with the Oyo state branch of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) because the state could not afford to pay the amount. He said the federal government lacks the power to impose a national minimum wage of states since Nigeria is a federation.

Makinde, Oyo Government Trade Words Over Alleged Last-Minute Spending

Oyo State Governor-elect, Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday accused the outgoing administration of embarking on hasty payment for contracts and projects.

He said credible sources within government revealed that non-visible contracts were being used as a guise to cart away millions of Naira from government account with the connivance of a few civil servants. Makinde said that while he does not want a time-wasting holistic probe as he had promised during his campaign, he will set a datelin...
