Presidency reveals N30,000 as minimum wage not possible for Nigerian workers

The Presidency has shown that the proposed N30,000 as a minimum wage for civil servants is not feasible.

The country's unions, which had previously demanded a N50,000 minimum wage and later said that N30,000 were agreed during the negotiations, are not happy about the government's attitude towards a new minimum wage for workers.

Last Sunday, the unions said they would start a nationwide indefinite strike on 6 November if the government failed to meet their demands for minimum wages for Nigerian workers.

The organized work has rejected the federal government's proposal to raise the minimum wage from 18,000 to 24,000.

But while on one Channels TV program, politics todayAs spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adeshina, said on Thursday, some governors were unable to pay the N18,000, not to mention N30,000.

"So if they can not pay N18,000 and ask the work for N30,000 and they refuse to get lower, there could be a stalemate that will not do the country any good.

"I think in the spirit of the negotiations, the work should not last for N30,000," he said.

Mr. Adesina was asked that if the political class, "especially members of the All Progressive Congress (APC)" agree to reduce their salaries, will the states be able to pay the N30,000 minimum wage?

He answered; "I doubt".

"Even if they decide not to collect anything, they still do not care about the N30,000 minimum wage, it does not.

"Perhaps, if the members of the National Assembly grant part of their salaries and allowances, this may weigh on the minimum wage, but other incumbents do not deserve anything extraordinary."
