#WorkersDay: PDP Will Treat Workers Right if it Returns to Power in 2019 – Ali Modu Sheriff



Ali Modu Sheriff

The National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, said the party will pay reasonable minimum wage to workers if it returned to power in 2019.

In a statement signed by his deputy, Dr Cairo Ojougboh on Monday in Abuja, Sheriff congratulated the workers on the 2017 Workers’ Day, and urged them to put in more efforts in making Nigeria great.

He said that the appeal was important as the country needed everyone to be involved in the rebuilding process that would take it to greater heights.

“When we take over power, we shall address minimum wage that will ensure workers’ pay will not only take them home, 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 will be another opportunity to change power; then, the workers will know what it means to have PDP back in power,” Sheriff said.

He said that the PDP was not just seeking to take over power, but was also looking forward to partnering Labour to emancipate citizens, no matter their tribes or religions.

    Our leaders are just silly. How is he going to increase the minimum wage? Does he not know that:
    1) Most states are not economically viable and spend more than earn.
    2) Most states are heavily indebted and spend a large portion of their income paying salaries.
    3) With inflation at 14.4%, the prices of goods and services would increase also.
    4) Truth is that most Governors are not innovative or creative at all.

    Please where is he going to increase the salary from? Is he an economist? Why make statements without any basis for implementation.

      Keep in mind majority of them are clueless and uneducated. They have no idea. It’s just all talk with no brain to back it up.
      APC and PDP are a joke. A totally new political competent leaders and party needs to emerge. Voting APC or PDP is recycling the same garbage and eat the same vomit. Disgusting.
