‘The Proposed Minimum Wage Recommendations Are Not Unrealistic’

Meanwhile, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has informed President Bola Tinubu that the proposed minimum wage recommendations are not unrealistic.

SERAP also urged President Tinubu to ensure that any proposed bill regarding a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers aligns with Nigeria’s international commitments to uphold workers’ rights to a decent living wage.

Recall that the President, in his Democracy Day Speech on June 12, promised that the new national minimum will soon be sent to the National Assembly for approval.

The statement of Tinubu came days after the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, received the recommendations of the 37-member Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage.

The Presidency had stated that organized labour’s demand for ₦497,000 as minimum wage is unrealistic and unserious.

The Federal Government, represented by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, had affirmed its dedication to establishing a realistic and sustainable minimum wage for Nigerian workers, mindful of the potential repercussions on the nation’s employment rates.
