Metro Nigeria: New Report Emerges About N56,000 Minimum Wage

There are unconfirmed reports that the federal government has started negotiations to increase the minimum wage of Nigerian civil servants to N56,000.

The federal government had agreed to open negotiations with labour unions following a strike action months ago over increment in pump price of petrol.

However, DailyTimes, Naij and several other online media are saying that negotiations are already on and that the Buhari government will be making the change in the future.

NLC factional president Ayuba Wabba, reportedly corroborated the story.

"We have submitted that demand. As I speak with you, the negotiation committee has not even taken off, but what I was informed two days ago, is that the process has been ongoing at different levels, because there are various people driving the process.” he said, according to the reports.

He also reportedly added that labour leaders met on Monday, October 31st, to finalize their position, preparatory to their meeting with the government team.

The present N18,000 minimum wage, was signed into law by ex President Goodluck Jonathan in March 2011.

Under previous administration, 200euro gives you #56,000. Now 200euro gives you #140,000. Minimum wages should be #140,000.
