- The FG of Nigeria has promised to review the current minimum wage of the country
- The minister of labor and employment, Chris Ngige, made the announcement at a public presentation of the NLC
- The inflation of basic amenities in the country is driving the government's decision to increase the minimum wage
The federal government of Nigeria has made known its intentions to increase the minimum wage in the country.
The increase was brought about by the increasingly harsh reality of the average Nigerian within the country. The Nigerian government disclosed that its rationale for increasing the minimum wage is to allow “workers’ base salaries to meet the current realities in the economy of the country.”
The Nigerian minister of labor and employment, Chris Ngige, disclosed the FG’s intentions at a public presentation of the Nigeria Labor Congress (NLC) of 40 publications titled, ‘contemporary history of working-class struggles’ held in Abuja on Monday.
