Minimum wage: Nigerian workers reject FG’s new N58,000 offer and propose N497,000.

Nigerian workers, under the auspices of the Nigerian Labor Congress and the Trades Union Congress, have rejected the federal government’s new N58,000 minimum wage offer.

According to Channels Television, sources in the Nigerian Labor Congress revealed this on Wednesday.

The report said organized labor also saw reasons to reduce their demand to the minimum wage from N615,000 to N497,000.

On Tuesday, the Federal Government offered organized workers a minimum wage of N54,000. Last week, he offered a minimum wage of 48,000 naira, prompting Nigerian workers to go on strike.

In an interview on Tuesday with Politics Today, NLC president Joe Ajaero described the government’s offer as insubstantial.

“It’s still not substantial compared to what we need for a family to move in,” he said.

Recall that the unions proposed a minimum wage of N615,000, down from N30,000, citing the prevailing economic realities faced by Nigerians.
