He mentioned that governors are awaiting the committee’s outcomes before making decisions on the minimum wage matter. The governor emphasized that states may exceed the minimum wage based on their financial capacity.

Furthermore, Governor Sule showcased Nasarawa State’s achievements, including the successful establishment of a lithium factory by foreign investors, demonstrating the state’s secure and business-friendly environment. He also highlighted the state’s agricultural successes, ranking highly in sesame farming, yam, cassava, and rice production.

Governor Sule discussed the upcoming commissioning of the lithium factory with Vice President Shettima, expressing optimism that President Bola Tinubu will attend the event. Nasarawa State’s progress in various sectors reflects its commitment to development and prosperity.
