FG Agrees To Pay N30,000 Minimum Wage As NLC Suspends Nationwide Strike by mebomebo: 1:36am On Nov 06
The organised labour unions have called off the planned nationwide industrial action initially scheduled to commence today to press home workers’ demand for a new national minimum wage.

The National Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, announced the suspension last night in Abuja at the end of the last meeting of the tripartite committee set up to come up with the new minimum wage.

Wabba said the decision to suspend the action was reached after agreements were reached and documents signed.

“Having reached this position and agreements signed, the proposed strike action is hereby suspended,” he said.

Wabba however, refused to disclose the figure of the new minimum wage arrived at by the committee.

He said the figure would only be made public after the committee’s report would have been presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by 4.15pm on Tuesday.

According to him, only one figure would be presented to the President.

Daily Trust however, authoritatively gathered that the government agreed and signed the #30, 000 demanded for by the workers.

Two union officials and a senior government official confirmed the #30, 000 agreement.

The Chairman of the committee, Amma Pepple, expressed delight that their assignment had been concluded.

“I am happy to report to you that we have concluded our assignment and we will submit our report to the President by 4.15pm on Tuesday.

We will reveal the figure at the presentation,” she said.

Unfortunately they have deployed all strategies to make it difficult for us to be united.
We have been divided along ethnic, religious and even regional lines.
So sad

Im sad, are suppose to be dragging 30k with our government ehn 30 thousand naira.... Now this news sounds like a great feat or something but it's a terribly sad moments and a shame... Please what is the most useless office in Nigeria and how much is the official collecting... I heard they say senators collect 15 Milla per month... 15 Milla every bleeping month(sit down inside AC, wear fine agbada and babariga and some even came to sleep but at the end of the month PING PING) 15 Milla enter account..... Now you are dragging 30 thousand with the people who elected you in office... Mind you the 30 thousand can still be likened to underpayment... What if we had demanded 80k or 100k ehn... What would it take the politicians we put in office for instance a senator to come out and say OK don't give us 15 million a month instead give us 14 million, why can't they sacrifice just a small share of their salary for the general populace.... Now we are celebrating 30k after 'royal rumble with out politicians.... It's sad, very sad and I'm terribly sad...

Im not proud to be a Nigerian today infact I'm renouncing my citizenship for 24hours... This is not a great achievement by my standard instead this is a great disappointment where it took the threats of a nationwide strike before 'reluctantly agreeing to the said amounts.... Tragic...

It was an easy decision for Buhari to make.
He simply made the BMC monthly salary the new minimum wage.
