I’ll Prioritize Workers’ Welfare And Implement N30,000 Minimum Wage – Adelabu.
Oyo State APC Governor Candidate, Chief Adebayo Adelabu,Promises To Implement N30,000 Minimum Wage If Elected.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Oyo state, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, has promised to implement the N30,000 minimum wage for the state’s civil servants if he becomes the governor.
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, the governorship candidate also said that his government would ensure prompt payment of workers’ salaries, as well as cater for pensioners and other segments of the state.
“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.”
Beyond prompt payment of salaries, the APC candidate assured the people of his readiness to run free, functional and qualitative education in the state.
He also promised all-round development for the youths.
One of the ways he says he would do this is by providing jobs through agriculture and also mobilizing them for vocational and technical education.
He also stated that funds would also be provided for entrepreneurship.
Speaking further, Adelabu promised to work with the Osun State Government to ensure that the ownership tussle besetting the Ladoke Akintola University (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, is straightened outside the courtrooms.
He appealed to the people of the state to support him in the race for Agodi Government House to enable him to consolidate on Ajimobi’s achievements,especially the enthronement of peace and security.
