President Bola Tinubu has stated that his led administration will review the minimum wage to reflect the current realities.
According to Arise TV, he stated this while meeting the Progressive Governors Forum led by the Chairman, Senator Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, at the State House, Abuja on Friday.
He said: “We need to do some arithmetic and soul searching on the minimum wage. We will have to take a look at that together, and the revenue. We must strengthen the source and application of our revenue.’’
President Tinubu urged the governors to make the most of their chance to stand out among the states’ millions of residents and improve people’s lives, and he pledged to work for Nigerians as a whole.
According to him: “This meeting is not strange to me, and the content of the meeting is so valuable. The camaraderie is very stimulating. This is about the Nigerian project, not Bola Tinubu”.
“I have inherited the assets and liabilities of my predecessor. This is the first time you entered the Council Chambers, and it is my first time too for a meeting.
“As progressives and thinkers under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress, you have a role to play in educating our people and making sure we manage ourselves,’’ the President told the governors
