Each state government should be allowed to set its minimum wage- Gov. Dikko Radda

Each state government should be allowed to set its minimum wage- Gov. Dikko Radda

While the federal government has offered N62,000 as the
minimum wage, labour is proposing N250,000.

 

“It is only in Nigeria that we have one single minimum wage
for laborers across all states. In other countries, different states have
different minimum wages based on sustainability and affordability,” Radda said.

 

“What is the need for the state government to agree to pay
N100,000 if they can’t implement it?”

 

The governor said there is a need for the country to embrace
ranching because it is more profitable.

 

“There is a need for us to encourage ranching. I am not
supporting or opposing, but I’m saying there is a need for us to embrace
ranching because it is more profitable,” he said.

 

“We cannot take the herders off the streets in a very short
time. We need to give people time to be enlightened.

 

“There will be a lot of sensitisation and encouragement for
people to go into ranching because it is more profitable and more secure.”

 

Radda said 90 per cent of the arable land in Katsina is
being cultivated despite the challenges with security.
