Nigerian Workers, NLC Demand 50 Per Cent Salary Increase Over Biting Inflation by Islie: 6:34pm On Aug 13
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has recommended a 50 percent salary increase review across board given the grim realities under the current President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

NLC made the recommendation in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari dated August 8.

The letter was a response to the economic prescriptions offered by the state governors.

SaharaReporters had earlier reported that state governors pushed for the elimination of petrol subsidy, the retirement of civil servants from the age of 50, and the reduction of National Assembly constituency projects among other prescriptions.

The union lambasted the governors for seeking early retirement of workers, saying anyone promoting this idea “should be treated as enemies of your government.”

Instead of early retirement, the union asked the Buhari-led administration to consider a further increase of workers’ salaries.

“While we commend you for your thoughtfulness for a wage increase, truth of the matter is that given the misfortune that has befallen the Nigerian populace, especially workers with fixed incomes, there is an urgent need for a massive intervention much deeper than the 22 percent,” the letter, signed by NLC President Ayuba Wabba, said.

“We would recommend a 50 percent salary review across the board given the realities on ground.”

Imagine governors want to reduce retirement age to 50, but they are supporting old and tired men above 70 who forged certificates to become president. One is an alleged drug baron while the other is in court to determine if he’s truly a Nigerian. It’s only a mad person that will vote for APC again after the horror Buhari made us pass through.

A vote for Obi is a vote for Nigerian youths.

Won't this lead to more inflation? As in, prices of things will increase more because traders and business owners will believe government has released more fund to people

As it stands now, APC government has destroyed Nigerian economy and this evil party need to be voted out in 2023 never again to near power in Nigeria. Only an evil, wicked soul and those benefiting from this government will want the status quo to continue. I say God forbid BAT thing!

NLC should vote Peter Obi and be patient till Obi comes to power as President in 2023. Peter Obi will definitely put the economy on the right path of recovery and growth. Workers will be well taken care of cos they are going to be part labour to move this country from consumption to production where a lively economy will breed strong purchasing power of goods and services to the betterment of every workers family in Nigeria. Nigeria will be great again with Peter Obi Presidency.

May God bless Peter Obi
May God bless Nigeria!

Ala ti o le se. Make una dey ready for retrenchment, i had a dream that, that would be the parting gift Buhari would give the Nigerian workers.

All this unions just want to hold the country hostage for political reasons, first ASUU president telling people to vote out APC whilst the students are the ones suffering, the government has tried to meet their demands but they want the government to do the impossible. I see Obi romance with them responsible for this actions. Whilst you blame the federal government don't forget the political undertone. We are all In this together, know who you support. So what happens after this post covid problems pass . Are they going to ask for a reduction in wages or we live with the inflation in the next administration and forever .
