Says Civil Servants Must Stop Covering Corrupt Governors
Niger Delta human rights, peace advocate and environmentalist, Comrade Sheriff Mulade, has charged the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, to vote out governors that say they can not pay the Thirty Thousand Naira minimum wage as being agreed with by the organized labour and federal government which will has been transmitted to the National Assembly to be passed into law.
Comrade Mulade, while addressing journalists in Abuja, wonderd why state governors will engage thousands of aides receiving 10 to 20 times of the new minimum wage without doing anything and no schedule, adding that every month those governors aides get alert as first line charge even before workers despite being as ghost workers which is not allowed by labour world wide.
He called on the organized labour to sign concrete agreements with those governors promising to pay the said minimum wage in order to keep those governors on their feet so that it does not become mere say.
The renowned environmentalist advised Nigerian workers to use their vote wisely and make sure they decide their future to a logical conclusion this time around.
The Niger Delta human rights advocate challenged the organized labour to press on with their demand, noting that some of the governors who cannot pay the new minimum wage are “wicked and do not want workers to see the light of the day.”
He urged the organized labour to be weary of any governor that cannot take workers welfare as their priority.
According to hm “It is worthy of note that these are the same governors and political office holders most of the workers aid and cover up in corruption but refuse to pay just N30 Thousand Naira only as your minimum wage, but can waste our resources on political gatherings, godfathers, family and associates,” he added.
