2019: ADP Presidential Candidate Promises To Pay N100,000 Minimum Wage If Elected

Posted by on November 22nd, 2018



The presidential candidate of the Action
Democratic Party, Yabagi Sani, on Wednesday,
said he would pay N100,000 national minimum
wage and create five million jobs if elected into
power in 2019, Punch has reported.
According to him, the agenda of the party would
be anchored on the deployment of new
governance models to restructure Nigeria and
give the people a new direction.
“As a patriot with focus, drive and uncommon
commitment to national development, I am
determined to change the narratives and be the
credible alternative our countrymen and women
are earnestly yearning for.
“Our agenda shall be anchored on the
deployment of new governance models to
restructure Nigeria and give our people a new
direction,” he stated.
Yabagi spoke in Abuja while starting his
campaign and unveiling his running mate, Prince
Martin Kunle Olateru-Olagbegi.
Other members of the ADP unveiled by him
included Dr. James Okoroma, a former Editor of
DAILY TIMES and ex-Media Aide to a former
Senate President, Dr. Chuka Okadigbo.
While Okoroma was named National Secretary of
the party and Director-General of his presidential
campaign organisation, Dr. Lynn Olisa was
named National Organising Secretary of the
While answering questions from journalists on
what he would pay as minimum wage, Yabagi
promised N100,000 and 5,000,000 jobs.
He said, “The Nigerian economy has the
capacity to give a minimum of N100,000 per
month to the least paid worker in this country.
We have the capacity, what we are losing is
“A country that is number six among the crude
oil and gas exporting countries in the world; a
country that is number three among the gas
exporting countries in the world; a country that
has the largest population in Africa; a country
that is number eight in terms of global
population, a country that is remarkable in terms
of where the resources of this world are
deposited and a country that has the youngest
population, youngest workers and youngest
capital with all the potential, we cannot be
paying N30,000 per month as minimum wage.
Believe me, it is very small.
“We have the capacity, the day we start growing
our economy, we will know that we can pay
more than N100,000 minimum wage. Why
should we be importing refined petroleum
products in Nigeria? Why should China which
was about 20 years ago a developing country be
making us slaves for now? Nigeria can do better
than what we are doing now.”
