The new minimum wage may not realise full-scale implementation without some disappointments, as some state governors have hinted on low funds and opted to increase tax being paid by the people.

Some of the governors made their positions known at the 2019 International Workers’ Day celebration that held in different states across the country on Wednesday.

Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Governor of Enugu State, said the state lacks required funds to meet the new wage, and urged workers to PRAY for an improvement in economy to boost the IGR of the state.

He said workers should prepare for an increase in tax if they want to receive N30,000 as minimum wage. “You see this issue of minimum wage, I will not be the first nor the last to pay it, but I will pay. Civil servants and others should be prepared to pay tax in Ebonyi State,” he said.
