Buhari Media Organisation Blasts Atiku Over N33,000 Minimum Wage
So, this morning former Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Part, PDP announced that he would be implementing 33,000-naira minimum wage for all staff, across his several businesses.
But not everyone is happy. Some of those include the Buhari Media Organization, BMO who have dismissed with a wave of hand the announcement by the presidential candidate.
The group said the promise was yet another attempt to hoodwink Nigerians.
BMO chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke said that the claim came at a time that some of Atiku’s former workers went public with revelations of unpaid wages and severance benefits as well as unfair labour practices.
The group wondered how the number of staff said to be in Atiku’s employment has increased from 50,000 to 100,000 within a few weeks.
“We are indeed amused that Atiku who only recently retrenched some staff of his GOTEL TV in Adamawa state without properly paying them off is dropping hints in the media about a 33, 000-naira minimum wage for his staff.
“One of his senior managers was even quoted as saying over 100,000 people are currently drawing salaries on a monthly basis from the former Vice President, so we are wondering who between him and the PDP presidential candidate is lying about the actual staff strength of the companies
“Not even Dangote Group which is the largest conglomerate in West Africa has the number of staff these people claim to be on Atiku’s payroll,” the BMO said.
