N30,000 minimum wage: Reality dawns on Oyo governor-elect - APC says

- The APC in Oyo state calls on Seyi Makinde to learn the art of governance as he takes over on May 29

- The current ruling party laments that it is too early for the governor-elect to start reneging on some of his electoral promises

- The party urges Seyi Makinde to stop acting like an opposition even after winning the election

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo, has asked the state’s governor-elect, Seyi Makinde, to humbly start learning the art of governance so he can fulfill his electoral promises to the people.

The APC, in a statement by its state’s publicity secretary, AbdulAzeez Olatunde, lamented that it was too early for Makinde to renege on his electoral promises.

This Day reports that in the statement, the party reacted to the claim by the spokesperson to the governor-elect spokesman, Dotun Oyelade, in which he warned the APC not to twist the interview Makinde granted in Abuja on the N30,000 minimum wage implementation.

The APC said: “Makinde said during his electoral campaign that Oyo workers deserved more than N30,000 as minimum wage. Now, he was quoted by the media in Abuja that he can’t pay the N30,000 minimum wage.

"We (APC) decided not to comment on Makinde’s electoral promise U-turn because we want electorate and the people of Oyo state to judge him while the party would not hesitate to provide the necessary constructive criticisms when the need arise.”

According to the APC, Makinde must have been hallucinating seeing the comment of APC on his electoral promise U-turn.

The party urged Makinde, who won election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to be ready to face governance from May 29 instead of still acting like opposition.

“The people of Oyo state deserve the best and we hope Makinde’s PDP will try not to disappoint which is doubtful. It is too early for Makinde to be reprimanding others for his mistakes.

“We wish him the best in his endeavors but with a caution that it is too early to renege on his electoral promises.

“We appeal to him to stop displaying his naivety about governance and remind him that not everything especially pilgrimage is politicized,” the APC said.

Legit.ng earlier reported that the Oyo state governor-elect, Seyi Makinde, said the state cannot pay the new national minimum wage of N30,000 just signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Makinde reportedly said the federal governments should have allowed states to negotiate the new minimum wage for their workers as the condition of living varies from state to state.
