Nigeria’s Minimum Wage Negotiations : Labour Considers N100,000 Amidst Ultimatum From Tinubu


The ongoing negotiations for Nigeria’s minimum wage have taken a significant turn as organised labour considers revising its demand to N100,000, down from the initially proposed N494,000. This decision comes after criticisms over the feasibility of the higher figure, which was deemed excessive by some stakeholders.

Despite earlier disagreements leading to an indefinite strike, negotiations have resumed with a one-week ultimatum set for reaching a consensus. President Tinubu’s directive to explore a wage higher than N60,000 underscores the urgency and complexity of the discussions, aiming for a sustainable and realistic outcome.
