Fuel price increase: Increase minimum wage, Murray-Bruce tells Buhari

Senator-Ben-Murray-BruceSenator Ben Murray-Bruce has called on
President Buhari to either increase minimum
wage for workers or excuse them from paying
tax to cushion the effects of the recent fuel
price hike.

Murray-Bruce made the appeal via tweeter late
Thursday night.

“I appeal to @MBuhari to consider the immense
suffering in Nigeria and increase minimum wage
to help workers cope with increased fuel price,”
he tweeted.

“Either @Mbuhari increases the minimum wage to help workers cope with increased fuel price,”
he tweeted.

“Either @Mbuhari increases the minimum wage
to help masses cope with increased fuel price or
he should allow minimum wage earners pay no
tax.”
He justified the call for minimum wage
increase, saying the President and his cabinet,
don’t buy fuel with their money, yet earn more
than minimum wage workers who do.
He accused the government of first reneging on
its promise ₦5000 allowance to poor Nigerians
and further adding to the suffering by increasing
the fuel price.
