“It is a law, it requires no persuasion; it covers all the states of the Federation. The outgoing governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi promised to pay N30,000 minimum wage, the governor-elect, Engineer Seyi Makinde also promised us even before the election.

“So, we would hold both of them to their words. A situation where workers are paid their salaries as at when due, a situation where workers enjoy their benefits as when due

“A situation where nepotism and favourism are not allowed, a situation where workers are not victimised, where justice prevails and act of the day, where sanity is brought into the system unlike the present situation.”
