A former governor of Jigsaw State, Sule Lamido has charged the federal government of Nigeria to respond and take immediate action as to paying Labor any amount the union agrees.

It is however recalled that the Organised Labour, made up of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress had lowered their asking price from #494,000 to #250,000 as minimum wage.

But the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration is adamant about paying the organized labor that amount, insisting on a #62,000 minimum wage as of the last proposal on the table.

Regarding the continuous disagreement between the Federal government and the organized labor, former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido has insisted that the federal government is capable of paying public servants any amount of money asked from the labor union.

He further said that if the federal government can deliver a project of ₦17 trillion for the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway without passing through the National Assembly, then it can afford to pay any amount as minimum wage.

He said, “Nigeria is very rich with resources and can overcome any problem and pay any amount we feel is responsible for Nigerians.

“If the government can embark on an N17 trillion project that is not in the budget, not advertised, not tendered for, or did not go through due process, it means that Nigeria got the money.

“How can a government execute a budget of N17 trillion without a budget or passing through the National Assembly, it means the money is there; there is money in Nigeria.

“If they can carry out such a project then they can pay any minimum wage.”
