“I want to assure you that the states and local governments will have issues on the implementation. That is why I said the battle has started.

“We will begin to hear from states government on how they will announce the implementation and which of the states that will have one obstacle or the other, and we plan how to confront those governments.

” The Nigerian workers also expect that by May they should start enjoying the new wage and I am sure the implementation has started from today and we also start counting the areas from today,” he submitted.
