NLC insists on N250,000, vows to reject FG’s N62,000 minimum wage

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has insisted that no amount of pressure would change the stance of the union against the N62,000 proposed minimum wage of the Federal Government.
 
NLC President, Joe Ajaero, reiterated the worker’s position in affirmation of its N250,000, adding that the labour union would remain committed in the struggle of workers interest.
   
Several meetings between government and the NLC had failed to yield significant result as both parties failed to shift ground even as the existing minimum wage expired in April 2024.
 
Ajero spoke in Kano yesterday during an award ceremony organised by the National Association of Medical and Health Workers, North West zone in honour of its National President, Kabiru Ado Munibur, and two other national executives from the zone. 

Represented by the NLC General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, the labour leader expressed worry over the economic reality and worsening inflation, which he said could no longer sustain Nigerian workers. 
   
Ajero reaffirmed NLC unwavering commitment to securing a realistic wage that would enables Nigerian workers a dignified life.
   
Kano State deputy governor, Aminu Abdussalam, who disclosed readiness to improve workers salary, said the present administration has eliminated arbitrary deduction from workers salaries. He also revealed payment of N11 billion pension liability in the last seven months, and promotion exercise for civil servants with full payment.
