El- Rufai said the new minimum wage should be set by the state governments based on their income and not the federal government’s decision to make.

 

He said this during the fourth national Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) peer learning event organized by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) in Abuja.

 

The governor said: “I do not agree that the national minimum wage should be under the federation. I think minimum wage should be done by each state according to the level of income. If you look at the 1963 constitution, minimum wage was not in the Exclusive List. It was added during the military rule.

 

There are a number of laws that were enacted during the military rule, and there is a need to look at them and do something about them.”
