PDP Promises Nigerian Workers Higher Minimum Wage From 2019

The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Sheriff, says the party would pay a reasonable minimum wage to workers if it returns to power in 2019.

In a statement signed by his deputy, Cairo Ojougboh, on Monday in Abuja, Mr. Sheriff congratulated workers on the 2017 Workers’ Day, and urged them to put in more efforts to make Nigeria great.

He said the appeal was important as the country needed everyone to be involved in the rebuilding process that would take it to greater heights.

“When we take over power, we shall address minimum wage that will ensure workers’ pay will not only take them home, but will be able to also cater for the families and pay school fees.

“We understand the difficulties the nation is going through at the moment, but a government can only be changed through the ballots.

“2019 will be another opportunity to change power; then, the workers will know what it means to have PDP back in power,” Mr. Sheriff said.

He said the PDP was not just seeking to take over power, but was also looking forward to partnering with labour to emancipate citizens, no matter their tribes or religions.
