Niger Delta human rights, peace advocate and environmentalist, Comrade Sheriff Mulade, has charged the Nigeria Labour Congress to vote out governors that are unwilling to pay 30 thousand naira minimum wage as being agreed with the organized labour with federal government which will soon be transmitted to the national assembly to be passed into law.
Comrade Mulade, while addressing journalist in Abuja, wondered why state governors will engage thousands of aides receiving 10 to 20 times of the new minimum wage without doing anything, no schedule, adding that every month those governors’ aides get alert as first line charge even before workers despite being as ghost workers which is never allowed by labour laws worldwide.
The environmentalist called on the organized labour to sign concrete agreement with those governors promising to pay the 30 thousand naira minimum wage in order to keep those governors on their feet so that it doesn’t become mere word of mouth and means if winning elections.
The renowned environmentalist advised Nigerian workers to use their votes wisely and make sure they decide their future to a logical conclusion this time around.
The Niger Delta human rights advocate challenged the organized labour to press on with their demand, noting that some of the governors who can’t pay the new minimum wage are “wicked and do not want workers to be happy.”
He, as well urged organized labour to be wary of any governor that cannot take workers welfare as their priority.
It is worthy of note that these are the same governors and political office holders most of the workers aid and cover up in corruption but refuse to pay just 30 thousand naira only as your minimum wage but can waste Nigerian resources on political gathering, godfathers, family and associates.
