Minimum Wage: Orji Uzor Kalu Reveals Suitable Salary for Nigerian Workers

Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 05th Jun, 2024 - tori.ng

The suggestion aims to address the ongoing dispute over the minimum wage between the Federal government and Organized Labour.

 
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has revealed the amount that should be approved by the Federal Government as new minimum wage.
 
He proposed N90,000 as new minimum wage for Nigerian workers.
 
The suggestion aims to address the ongoing dispute over the minimum wage between the Federal government and Organized Labour.
 
During Tuesday’s Senate plenary, the discussion centered around the nationwide strike organized by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) to advocate for a significantly increased minimum wage, surpassing the current N30,000.
 
“Let the entire Senate see how we can persuade both the Labour and the Federal government to agree between N75, 000 to N90, 000 naira.

“If you go by 90,000 naira, it means in the last five years in which this law (N30,000) was made, it means if you divide 200 percent of N90,000 by 5 it will give you 40 and the food inflation, the purchasing parity and other things you have in the market is also around 32 to 33%, so Labour should be very happy with what we are doing,” he said.
