Tinubu And APC Govs

President Bola Tinubu has assured that a better national minimum wage would be worked out for Nigerian workers to reflect the realities of the times.

“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,’’ Tinubu said at a meeting with the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), led by its chairman, Gov. Hope Uzodinma of Imo, at the State House on Friday in Abuja.

The President promised that his administration would prioritise the welfare and security of Nigerians with more people-focused economic policies.

According to the President, the federal and states government would work together on the minimum wage review.

Tinubu urged the governors to seize the opportunity of being chosen among millions of citizens in their states to make a difference in the lives of the people.

“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,’’ he said.

The President also said that the multiple exchange rates would be streamlined, noting that governance was a continuum.

“I have inherited the assets and liabilities of my predecessor.

“As progressives and thinkers under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC), you have a role to play in educating our people and making sure we manage ourselves,’’ the President said.
