The new chairman of the Oyo State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, (NLC) Comrade Bayo Titilola-Sodo has declared that there was no excuse for any state governor not to implement the N30,000 minimum wage with immediate effect.
Speaking after he was declared winner of the election at the NLC delegates conference held at Adamasingba Stadium, Ibadan, the state capital, Titilola-Sodo explained that the payment of minimum wage was a law binding on all the 36 state governors which needs no persuasion before the implementation particularly in Oyo state.
According to him, “the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wages should be immediate without further delay. The President has signed it, it is a law and the law is binding on all the 36 state governors.
“It is a law, it requires no persuasion, it covers all the states of the Federation. The outgoing governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi promised to pay N30,000 minimum wage, the governor-elect, Engineer Seyi Makinde also promised us even before the election. So we would hold both of them to their words”, he said.
Dwelling on what to expect from the newly elected executives of the NLC, Oyo State chapter in the next three years, Titilayo-Sodo said, “a situation where workers are paid their salaries as at when due, a situation where workers enjoy their benefits as when due.
“A situation where nepotism and favourism are not allowed, a situation where workers are not victimised, where justice prevails and act of the day, where sanity is brought into the system unlike the present situation.”
Other elected executives are Adedeji Taofeek; vice chairman 1, Martins Bayonle; vice chairman 2, Rukayat Afonja; chairperson, Ademola Babalola;Treasurer, Oladele Olusegun and Folorunsho Olujimi, Auditor 1 and Auditor 2 respectively.
