IBADAN—ALL  Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, yesterday, promised to implement the N30,000 minimum wage for the state’s civil servants if he becomes the governor.

Minimum Wage

Adelabu, who made the promise while addressing a mammoth crowd of party faithful and supporters, also promised to prioritize workers welfare without neglecting other citizens, during a campaign rally in Ibadan, on Tuesday.

He assured workers that his administration would pay the N30,000 minimum wage if it was eventually passed into law by the National Assembly and assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Aside from implementing the minimum wage, Adelabu said that his government would ensure prompt payment of workers’ salaries, as well as cater for pensioners and other segments of the state.

Adelabu said: “I want to assure workers in Oyo State that if I am voted as governor, my government will implement the N30,000 minimum wage without qualms if eventually passed by the National Assembly and assented to by Mr  President.

“Aside from paying the minimum wage, I will also ensure prompt payment of workers’ salaries because our workers deserve the best so that they too can give their best. But, I will not neglect other stakeholders who are also entitled to the dividends of democracy.”

“No doubt, civil servants are crucial to the success of any administration. But other categories of the population such as artisans, traders, farmers, students and professional bodies will also have a feel of my administration’s welfare programmes.

“Throughout my working life, and particularly at the Central Bank of Nigeria, I never received salaries beyond the 25th  of every month. Therefore, my administration will make sure that workers’ salaries are paid promptly.”
