Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has assured workers of his readiness to implement the N30,000 minimum wage once passed into law, just as he asked labour leaders in the country to intensify agitation for a review of the nation’s revenue sharing formula.

The governor spoke while receiving Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) members who were at the Government House to agitate for the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

He stated that too much money was concentrated at the centre; hence the need for the sharing formula to be reviewed, so that state workers could be properly remunerated.


Appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to start the anti-corruption war by properly remunerating public servants, Tambuwal explained that the revenue sharing formula should be reviewed every five years.

President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, had said that they staged the rally to actualise the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage.

Wabba, represented by the national auditor of NLC, who is also special adviser to the Kano governor on labour matters, Isah Danguguwa, described Tambuwal as labour-friendly and urged him to talk to his counterparts and other leaders to implement the new wage.

He commended the governor for being one of the leaders that championed the implementation of the N18,000 minimum wage, and applauded his government for agreeing to implement the new minimum wage once passed into law.
