Presidential aspirant Omoyele Sowore, promises to Pay N100,000 As Minimum Wage If Elected In 2019
Omoyele Sowore, a presidential aspirant of African Action Congress (AAC), has declared that he will ensure civil servants in the country receive N100,000 as minimum wage from 2019 if he is elected as Nigeria’s president.
Speaking at a town hall meeting organised by the party in Badagry, Sowore said Nigerians were indirectly going into slavery by traveling to different countries in search of jobs.
He noted that over 43 million black Africans were sold into slavery in the coastal city about 400 years ago, a development he said was still happening indirectly because of lack of job.
“I am in politics to stop this by providing 500,000 jobs yearly.
“The minimum wage for civil servant will be N100,000 from 2019.”
“I have traveled all over Nigeria, but I have not seen any international expressway like Lagos-Badagry.We spent almost five hours coming here instead of one and half hours. Badagry town has been cut-off from Nigeria due to deplorable state of the road.This is very shameful.”
He promised to construct two expressways from Badagry to Lagos, and another one linking Badagry and Ogun State if elected into power in the 2019 general elections.
“I heard now that politicians are buying Permanent Voters Card (PVC) for N10,000. Please don’t sell your PVC; the PVC is your future.
“Can you do any business with N10,000? They will buy your card; your future is your PVC; keep it.”
