Govs, Senators, and Reps should receive the same minimum wage as laborers – Mbaka.

by Admin

Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual director of Adoration Ministries Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), has stated that the N62,000 minimum wage proposed by the Federal Government should also be extended to governors and Nigerian lawmakers, both in the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Concerned about the hardship faced by Nigerians and the ongoing debate over a living minimum wage, the cleric, speaking to newsmen on Saturday, June 8, said:

“If we decide to give labor N60,000 or N62,000, why not generalize it to House of Assembly members, senatorial members, House of Representative members, and governors? They are all civil servants. Are the others slaves? I can’t understand why they are amassing billions as sitting allowance, wardrobe allowance, newspaper allowance, and suffering allowance.

The people that should have such allowances are those suffering in the village. How much are our teachers, nurses, and doctors being paid? Let’s be realistic, our civil servants who wake early and return late daily, how much are they being paid?

Considering the level of inflation in the country, you will see that we are all not sincere in this country. I’m pleading with the government that a stitch in time saves nine; this situation must be handled with care because it might be hijacked, and nobody knows the ripple effect.”
