No Peace For You – Oshiomhole Fumes, Blasts Govt Refusing To Pay N35,000

Senator Adams Oshiomhole has firmly stated that there should be no peace for any government, whether at the state or local level, that fails to implement the Federal Government’s N35,000 grant.

“The Federal Government approved N35,000 increase on top of current wage levels. But I’m yet to understand why any Nigerian state government or governor is not implementing that agreement,” Oshiomhole expressed during an interview on Channels Television on Sunday.

He emphasized that the provisional wage award should be implemented across all levels of government and even extended to the private sector.

“I don’t agree that the money was for only federal employees. Federal employees don’t have different markets from state employees and the struggle that was mobilised, workers in Nigeria were mobilised both public and private sectors in what we called a general strike before that money was awarded,” he added.

Oshiomhole stressed that the implementation of the N35,000 wage increase should be a universal mandate, urging the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and workers to push for its full implementation.

“By extension, therefore, all state governments, local governments, federal government, and private sector employers should implement it. I don’t think NLC business is to lament it. They should fight for the implementation of their rights,” he asserted.

He concluded by stating his viewpoint clearly: “Any government that refuses to implement the N35,000 is not entitled to peace. That’s my view.”
