The Federal Government says it would soon address the clamour by workers for the upward review of the national minimum wage.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, made the promise in his remarks at the 22nd Choir Anniversary of the Christ Apostolic Church, Living Water DCC Headquarters, Abuja.
Mustapha, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary (General Services Office), Office of the SGF, Olusegun Adekunle, said the government was sensitive to the plight and wishes of the masses and that workers and all Nigerians will smile soon.
He said, “While this administration is determined to bring our nation to self-sufficiency and self-reliance, it is also sensitive to the plight and wishes of the Nigerian masses.
“I assure Nigerians that the recent agitation for upward review in the national minimum wage will soon be addressed in such a way that not only Nigerian workers will smile, but the entire nation will be better for it.”
Mustapha also admitted that Nigeria needed prayers and supports of churches at this time in the nation’s history more than any other time.
He said while the government was working hard to address the nation’s challenges, the church should continue to assist the government with prayers.
Mustapha also urged Christians to take part actively in the forthcoming elections by getting their Permanent Voter Cards and voting for leaders of their choice.
He said if they failed to elect leaders of their choice, others would elect their choices to lead them.
