Minimum wage negotiations: Tinubu to meet with organised labour

By Seyi Babalola

Barring any last-minute change of plans, President Bola Tinubu will meet with the leaders of organised labour on Thursday.

Tinubu will meet with labour groups at the Presidential Villa in Abuja to discuss the proposed new national minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

According to reports, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, would attend the conference, which is believed to be called at the President’s request.

It should be recalled that the Nigerian government and organized labour have been at odds over the implementation of a new minimum wage for workers.

While labour demands N250,000, the Federal government has offered N60,000 as the new national minimum wage.
