However, Upah accused state governors of acting in bad
faith.

 

His statement reads partly: “We do believe the governors
have acted in bad faith. It is unheard of for such a statement to be issued to
the world in the middle of an ongoing negotiation. It is certainly in bad
taste.

 

“As for the veracity of their claim, nothing can be further
from the truth as FAAC allocations have since moved from N700 billion to N1.2
trillion making the governments extremely rich at the expense of the people.

 

“All that the governors need to do to be able to pay a
reasonable national minimum wage (not even the N60,000) is cut down on the high
cost of governance, minimise corruption as well as prioritise the welfare of
workers.”
