President Tinubu Promise To Approve Minimum Wage Nigeria Can Afford

President Bola Tinubu says he will approve a new minimum wage that the Nigerian government can afford.

He stated this on Wednesday at a dinner with the Senate President and Deputy Senate President, among other top government officials to mark Nigeria’s 25 years of unbroken Democracy in Abuja.

The President, while appreciating those who stood by him over the years, promised Nigerians he won’t depart from the tenets of democratic governance.

“I have to celebrate with you my dear brother, Senate President, Deputy Senate President,” he said.

According to Tinubu, Senate President Godswill Akpabio and his deputy, Jibrin Barau would soon get an Executive Bill from him on the new minimum wage.

“The minimum wage is going to be what Nigerians can afford, what you can afford and what I can afford. Cut your coat according to your size, if you have size at all,” he said.

Continuing, President Tinubu also promised to tackle the menace of banditry that has forced many farmers away from their farms, in a bid to bring down the prices of food.
