N30,000 minimum wage: Governors sack threat sparks OUTRAGE
Sat, 17 Nov 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

ANGRY reactions have trailed the declaration by governors that they cannot pay the N30,000 minimum wage contained in the report of the Tripartite Committee submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari last week. In different reactions yesterday, groups and individuals, including Ijaw leaders, a former scribe of the Arewa Consultative Forum’s Political Committee, Alhaji Mohammed Abdulrahman, former Kaduna State governor, Alhaji Balarabe Musa and former Cross Rivers State governor, Mr. Donald Duke, spoke against the threat by governors to retrench workers if they must pay the new minimum wage. The governors had stated their position on the issue after a meeting the Nigeria Governors’ Forum held in Abuja on Wednesday.

In his reaction to the issue yesterday former Kaduna State governor, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to compel state governors to pay the proposed minimum wage from their monthly statutory allocations and “end the unjustifiable threat of sacking workers.” This, he said, the President must do in order to reflect his genuine populist concerns. In Musa’s opinion, labour leaders ought to be demanding a minimum of N60,000 as minimum wage if they are to be realistic about the welfare of lowly-paid workers. He said: “The President of Nigeria should prove his populist position and compel all these governors who receive monthly federal statutory allocations to pay workers the N30,000 minimum wage they are demanding for.

“I believe that everyone knows that a family of five needs at least N60,000 for feeding, transport and other needs. “We can never address the prevailing mass poverty and bolster workers’ productivity in a situation where some governors are making dangerous threats over demand for a mere N30,000 minimum wage.” Expressing anger over state governors’ threat, a former Secretary of the Arewa Consultative Forum’s Political Committee, Alhaji Mohammed Abdulrahman, berated governors for joking with their responsibilities, saying that many of them could end up in jail for betraying the people’s cause.

He said: “These politicians called governors are still playing recklessly with their responsibilities to the people because they have forgotten that they are servants of the people, and ‘We The People’ are their employers.’’ A lawyer, civil rights activist and former National Secretary of Labour Party of Nigeria, Kayode Ajulo, described the governors’ threat to sack workers on account of the minimum wage as an empty boast. He said that existing laws make the governors’ threat unrealistic as the courts may compel them to pay much more as legal damages if the governors breach the laws under which workers were engaged by their various states. “It’s not only an empty boast, it is one that one should not ordinarily dignify with a response.

The terms under which government workers are hired and the conditions for their firing are embodied in statutes,” he said. “It stands to reason that they would resist any attempt by governors to fire them except in accordance with their conditions of service. “Also it may be more expensive to have to cough out all emoluments that will be direct consequences of such willful disengagements. “Having said that, I wish to encourage the workers to not only be vigilant but to also be proactive by ensuring that governors within the ranks of the anti- 30,000 minimum wage group are not voted back into office. “They must take assurances from everyone who aspires into the office of a Governor that he or she would accede to the demand for the minimum of wage of N30,000 or more,” Ajulo stated.
