Governors Say ₦30,000 Minimum Wage Will Bankrupt States


The governors of the 36 Nigerian States have said that it is impossible for states to afford the ₦30,000 minimum wage.

Punch reports that this was said after their emergency meeting of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF).

Paying ₦30,000 would bankrupt the states, they said, leading to a collapse.

A fresh committee will be formed, they shared, to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over the issue.
