Don’t Play Politics With Minimum Wage – Primate Ayodele Tells Tinubu

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has cautioned President Bola Tinubu against playing politics with the new national minimum wage.

Primate Ayodele advised Tinubu to work on price control rather than divide labour over their demands, according to him, hardship would persist after the new minimum wage is implemented.


Ayodele said, ‘’Tinubu must not play with the worker’s minimum wage. Their initial request was too much but they have come down to a reasonable level now and I want to advise President Tinubu not to play politics with it by trying to divide them.

However, let there be price control because without it, minimum wage is zero no matter the amount.’’

Organized labour is demanding the sum of N250,000 from the Nigerian Government, while the representatives of the Federal Government have proposed the sum of N62,000.
