The spiritual leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has urged President Bola Tinubu to rather increase the minimum wage to hundred thousand rather than the eight thousand naira palliatives.
The spiritual leader opined that the eight thousand naira palliatives will open door to corruption and will caused a negative impact on the masses.
He stressed that, “If truly the government is concerned about the masses, the minimum wage should be increased to N100,000.
“It will go a long way in cushioning the effects of subsidy removal and inflation. Minimum wage increase will have a direct impact on the people than N8,000 palliative. “The N8,000 palliative is corruption, I see nothing in the palliative, and it will not reach out to the poor masses.”
“Despite the fact that Mr President has signed it, it will not make any impact. The governors will use it for their selfish needs. The poor will not enjoy it at all”. “It will not be a blessing to the majority; the palliative is just a waste of time and energy, it cannot work for its purpose.”
