Nigerian bishops lament refusal to implement minimum wage

September 26, 2011

The bishops of Nigeria are lamenting the refusal of state governments to implement a new national minimum wage.

“We believe that our nation has enough resources to ensure a fair wage to our citizens,” the bishops said in a statement. “In this respect, we passionately call for a more judicious application of our resources which radically prunes wastages and enforces deep commitment towards a culture of fiscal responsibility.”
