The Action Democratic Party (ADP) presidential candidate, Yabagi Sani, on Wednesday, said he would pay N100,000 national minimum wage and create five million jobs if elected into power in 2019.
He made this known while starting his campaign and unveiling his running mate, Prince Martin Kunle Olateru-Olagbegi.
Punch reports that while answering questions from journalists on what he would pay as minimum wage, Yabagi promised N100,000 and 5,000,000 jobs.
He said, “The Nigerian economy has the capacity to give a minimum of N100,000 per month to the least paid worker in this country. We have the capacity, what we are losing is leadership.
“A country that is number six among the crude oil and gas exporting countries in the world; a country that is number three among the gas exporting countries in the world; a country that has the largest population in Africa; a country that is number eight in terms of global population, a country that is remarkable in terms of where the resources of this world are deposited and a country that has the youngest population, youngest workers and youngest capital with all the potential, we cannot be paying N30,000 per month as minimum wage. Believe me, it is very small.
