Labour Meets Tinubu, Insists On N250,000 Minimum Wage

July 11, (THEWILL) – Organised Labour, comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), on Thursday, maintained its stance on a minimum wage of N250,000.

NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero, made this known to State House Correspondents, after a meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Thursday, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

THEWILL had reported that at the end of the Tripartite Committee meeting on the new national minimum wage, the federal government team and the organised private sector offered N62,000, but the organised labour demanded N250,000 living wage.


President Tinubu had said in his Democracy Day speech on June 12, 2024, that an Executive Bill on the new national minimum wage for workers would soon be sent to the National Assembly for passage. The President, however, delayed the move to allow for further consultation with stakeholders on the minimum wage.

Speaking on Thursday, in Abuja, Ajaero told State House Correspondents that the engagement with the President is expected to resume next week.

While details of the discussions were not disclosed, TUC President, Festus Osifo, said Labour explained its position to the President.
