The Nigeria Governors Forum rejected the proposed N60,000 minimum wage on Friday, sparking outrage from the labor union. The NLC argues that the governors’ stance is a breach of trust and a betrayal of the agreement reached with the organized labor.

 

NLC President Joe Ajaero stated that the congress would not back down on its demand for a living wage for Nigerian workers, stressing that the N60,000 minimum wage is non-negotiable. The labor union vowed to mobilize workers for a nationwide strike if the governors fail to reconsider their position.

 

The minimum wage dispute has been ongoing since 2020, with the NLC demanding a new minimum wage to reflect the country’s current economic reality. The stalemate has raised concerns about the welfare of Nigerian workers and the potential impact on the economy.
