Father Mbaka: “Governors, Senators, And Representatives Should Receive The Same Minimum Wage As Labour

The spiritual head of Adoration Ministries Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, asserts that the N62,000 minimum salary that the federal government is proposing ought to be extended to governors and Nigerian members of the Senate and House of Representatives.

Concerned about the struggles Nigerians face and the continuing discussion about a decent minimum wage, the cleric stated to reporters on Saturday, June 8:

“If we decide to give labour N60,000 or N62,000, why not generalise it to the House of Assembly members, senatorial members, House of Representative members, and governors? They are all civil servants, so are the others slaves? I can’t understand why they are amazing 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 that wake early and return late daily, how much are they being paid?

Looking at 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.”

I totally agree with Fr Mbaka. They should test and see what Nigerians have been going through all this while.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
