According to Nwoga, Buhari had paid back to the masses, who supported him serially since his first presidential election in 2003, by signing the N30, 000 minimum wage into law.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes Nwoga as saying: “We are particularly happy about the timing of the president in signing the new minimum wage.

“If the president had signed it before the election, the opposition will spin that it was an election gimmick. The timing has spared us the opposition’s usual fake news.”

The BSO chairman further said while campaigning for a second tenure, President Buhari had assured workers of the new N30, 000 minimum wage and continuation of critical infrastructural development.

“This is another promise fulfilled,” Nwoga said.

While appealing to the local, state governments and the private sector employers to diligently honour and implement the new wage, he added: “This is a win-win scenario for it not only rhymes with the provision of the 1999 constitution, which states clearly that the primary purpose of government is the welfare and security of the people, but will usher in prosperity.

“It is this holy alliance between Buhari and Nigerian masses, which without prejudice to the petition before the presidential election tribunal by PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, which makes the Facebook suit a mere academic exercise.
