FG and Labour Agree on New Minimum Wage Above N60,000

The Federal Government and organized labour have agreed to set a new minimum wage above N60,000.
This agreement was reached on Monday after a meeting between leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC), and federal government representatives.
The meeting was called in response to an indefinite nationwide strike initiated by labour unions demanding a living wage. George Akume, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), announced the resolutions, stating, “President Bola Tinubu is committed to a national minimum wage that is higher than N60,000.”
Akume reassured Nigerians of a productive and patriotic meeting, promising that results would soon be evident. He mentioned that the tripartite committee would meet daily for the next week to finalize the national minimum wage.
In deference to President Tinubu’s commitment to a minimum wage above N60,000, labour agreed to convene a meeting of its organs to consider this commitment. Akume also assured that no worker would be victimized due to the industrial action.
However, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) stated on their official handle on X: “Until we hear from our organs at our meeting scheduled for today, June 4, we are still on strike.”
