The federal government says it will raise workers’ base salaries to meet the economic current realities of the country. 

The N30,000 minimum wage was initiated in 2019, however, after three years, some states are yet to implement it. 

According to the minister of labour and employment Chris Ngige, the federal government is aware that the N30,000 national minimum wage had depreciated, adding that the government will look into adjusting the wages. 

On his part, Festus Osifo, president of, Trade Union Congress (TUC), said workers have been dominated and oppressed by the ruling class. 

Osifo also said the N30,000 minimum wage was no longer feasible in the current economic circumstances, adding that workers’ transportation fare to work for a month is in excess of their take-home pay.
