BREAKING!! Federal Government Releases New MINIMUM WAGE And Its Ridiculous

The Federal Government has come to the conclusion that it can not afford more than N25,000 per month as the new minimum wage.

The organized labor and Organized Private Sector (OPS) have refused to accept the figures tendered by the Federal Government and are insisting on N30,000 minimum wage per month.

The Federal Government has earlier presented N21, 700 per month as new minimum wage to the other social partners when the tripartite committee resumed sitting on Thursday, October 4th.

But not happy with what the Federal Government had presented despite the high cost of living in the country at the moment, the organized labor and Organized Private Sector (OPS), reportedly reached an accord, increasing their earlier figure to N40,000 from N25, 000

    If Buhari is indeed fighting corruption. No political Office holder must go Abroad for treatment. Their children must school in Nigerian public school. Each must no own NOT more than maximum of 3 cars.

    NLC Pls don’t accept that amount, if they can give above two million Naira to delegate to buy elections, they can also pay 40k or we resume our strike. But we should not say BUHARI Govt has failed he inherited the current minimum wage.

  25. ALAN says:

    25k is nothing in Nigeria again, NLC must commence another strike and the agreement must be between 35k to 40k at least… Federal government is paying 18k and Lagos state is paying 12,500naira presently, now if federal government approves 25k, how much do you want Lagos state to pay… My own calculus is federal should pay like 40k and Lagos state or any other state should pay 30 or 35k simple…

    30,000 naira can not cripple Nigeria economy if we compare to the cost if living in this country. For example, people living in a room and parlour or in a two bedroom flat how do want them to pay their house rent with 30,000 naira? Or people having two to three children how do u want them to pay their children school fees with 30,000 naira? Federal government should please and meet up with the labour demand. We know that is not easy, but they should consider the masses especially the ordinary lay man. I mean uneducated people.

    It is rather unfortunate to observe with tears that the President Buhari led administration is indeed inhuman and full with the most corrupt politicians. A senator earns N13.5m per month which sum-up to N162m annually.

  135. Shabako Mohammed Mamman says:

    What i only know is that the more the increment in minimum wage, the higher the increment in good’s price.

    This govt haved failed Nigeria,let changed the change come 2019

    In actual sense fg should know that 25 thousand naira minimum wage is too small to manage in this present inflation of goods in the market. They should rethink on the carrring capacity of one with family.

    It really funny if federal government can’t meet up to their works demand, how much is 25000,but our so called senator are collecting almost 29million if not murder, our leader are leader for their own family members. I just eat so called politician in this country called Nigeria is a piety.

  140. Babs says:

    25 k in present day Nigeria is a deceitful mirrage.Its grossly insufficient to even meet up with 3 basic needs of human which areFOOD,SHELTER,& HOUSING. What abt other essential secondaries of life like education, health, self investment, Let alone the average working class are not single status but family Men &women.
    Omaseo ,a lost generation with Nigerian parasitic leaders. Who can siphon MUKTIMILLIONS AS MONTHLY ALLOWANCE IN SENATE.
    JUST go back to an indefinite strike. Until Government is ready to approve &circularize minimum of 50k. Thanks.
    WOE TO THOSE WHO SAID 56K WILL CRIPPLE THE ECONOMY when a minister’s salary will not cripple it.
    What labour is demanding for is not up to 1 percent of president’salary.
    MINIMUM OF 50K minimum wage would only manage self. Labour should not settle for anything less than that

  141. Lekaaga Goodness Brown says:

    This Nigerian government is heartless. Some of the politicians are not graduates, yet one person’s allowance can pay 100 civil servants. Which work are all the senators and the rest doing that they are paid millions of naira and other government workers suffering? They should change for the better before the wrath of God falls upon the ooo.

  142. Bello ibrahim says:

    Mr president you have to reduce the salary of your ministers,sanate, reps that are earning millions of naira as their salary every month and increase the salary to the younger and petty workers

  143. Ajibola Olawale Abass says:

    If the minimum wage is 100,000 naira, it will not solve our problem. All we want is cost of things to reduce, so 19,800 will be enough. If the minimum wage is increased, the cost of things will increase as well. All those artisans will increase the cost of their service, they have to benefit from the new trend. Meanwhile, everything will be back to the way it was. Let the cost of living reduce so we can enjoy the little we are being paid. With that, we can boost our economy. Gracias.

    Nigerian leaders re failure nothing good comes out of them

  147. Forget it says:

    Even if they pay us 200k min wage, they have their ways of getting it back from us for example they can decide to increase pump price of fuel which will trigger high the cost of most things in the country so therefore I think what we really need is for cost of living to be less expensive so that with our little money, we can have value for it also, 2019 is fast approaching have u gotten your PVC?

  148. Apollos Philemon says:

    Issued of 30k will not solve our pblems, pls, NLC if u collect something from Federal Government u better pay back if not u will face quaicee-quaicee God is alive.

  149. Apollos Philemon says:

    Once again pls, pray for our leaders as well as our country at large.

  150. Abdullahi Lawal says:

    Strike should be call off but federal government should increase the minimum wage in a later time.

  151. Ibrahim yakubu says:

    Which can stupid senators that Nigeria even have, money that is not even their own,God is watching u all we the poor will still survive.

    #86m only for hair cut and treatment alone per annum does not make the country’s economy go bankrupt. The way out for workers, Nigeria and indeed all Nigerians is to make political offices voluntary. That time is fast approaching.
