Former General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) worldwide and founder CAC Agbara Itura, Prophet (Dr) Samuel Kayode Abiara has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and all governors in 36 states of the Federation to pay the proposed N30,000 minimum wage to workers.
Prophet Abiara made this statement on Sunday during interaction with journalists on the sideline of the 33 Anniversary Celebration of CAC Agbala Itura Oke Odo,Agege in Lagos state. This was reaction to threat of industrial action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) over the delay in approval of N30, 000 minimum wage by governors and the Federal Government.
According to him, the N30,000 minimum wage proposed by the NLC is small considering the high cost of living in the country.
The Prophet advised all Governors to device means to meet up with the payment of the N30, 000 minimum wage. He noted that the threat to sack workers will not solve the problem on ground when they go on strike. “ Instead Of threatening to sack the workers, the Federal Government should support state governments in raising funds needed to meet the demand of workers,” he suggested.
Speaking also on the insecurity issue, in the country, Abiara said, these are signs of end time and encouraged Nigerians not to be afraid.
He said that, in the Holy Bible, when evil and terrible things happens it means the time is near. He called on Nigerians to be of good conduct as God will reward the act of the wicked.
In his words| “if the wicked don’t change, the judgment of God will come upon them, they can’t escape judgment even in death”.
The cleric urged those seeking for political positions in different political parties to be law abiding and follow their counterpart in the western world at the forth coming election as it is not a do or die affair.
Abiara noted that the 2019 election will be peaceful. He said that the CAC has set aside the 3rd-9th December 2018 to pray for the nation’s election and the New Year. He also called on others to join in the prayer as God truly answer prayers.
