Atiku Makes Big Promise To All Workers On Minimum Wage

PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has assured the civil servants in Nigeria of a better salary package if he is elected as President come 2019.

He promised that his government will be totally workers friendly and committed to promoting a living wage for all Nigerian workers.

Atiku stated this in a post shared on his Twitter page; “I want the Nigerian Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress and the generality of Nigeria’s workers to be assured of my commitment to the principle of a living wage for Nigeria’s workers.

“In my private enterprises, I have shown commitment to the goose that lays the golden egg, and if given the opportunity, I shall extend that commitment to the public sector.”

The NLC and its partner, the Trade Union Congress (TUC), are protesting the resistance of the federal, state and local governments to the proposed adoption of N30,000 as the new minimum wage in the country.

They have warned that unless the figure was accepted by the government, they would call for an indefinite nationwide strike.
