As Nigerians join the rest of the world to mark workers’ day, the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff yesterday promised improved minimum wage if the party wins the 2019 general elections.
Congratulating workers across the country, Sheriff, in a statement by his Deputy, Cairo Ojougboh, said that PDP was not only seeking power, but partnership with Labour to emancipate Nigeria people no matter the tribe or religion.
He said: “We want to use this avenue to urge the workers to put more efforts in making the nation great. We promise them that in 2019, when we take over power, we shall address minimum wage that will ensure workers pay will not only take them but will be able to also cater for the families and pay school fees.
“We understand the difficulties the nation is going through at the moment, but a government can only be changed through the ballots. 2019 would be another opportunity to change power, then the workers would know what it means to have PDP back in power.
“We don’t seek to just take power, we seek a partnership with Labour that will eventually emancipate the Nigeria people no matter your tribe or religion
“We want to congratulate the nation’s workers and urged them not to relent in taking the nation to a greater height.”
