BREAKING: Tinubu Considers Living Wage for Workers

On May 1, 2024, President Bola Tinubu considered the appeal by workers regarding a national living wage.

Tinubu made the consideration while speaking at Eagle Square in Abuja during the 2024 May Day celebration.

Recall that the National Labour Congress (NLC) president, Joe Ajaero had insisted on a living wage after Tinubu announced 25-35 per cent minimum wage rise for civil servants across six consolidated salary structures.

The President acknowledged that a national living wage, rather than a minimum wage, would more effectively address the living conditions of workers.

He was represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima at the event.

Tinubu said:

The 37-member tripartite committee on minimum wage’s mandate was to provide counsel and suggest a national minimum wage that aligns with our current economic conditions.

“Since then, the committee, in collaboration with labour leaders, has been diligently working towards proposing a new national minimum wage.

Unfortunately, despite concerted efforts, the committee was unable to reach a consensus at its last meeting.

“This shall be resolved soon and I assure you that your days of worrying are over.

“Indeed, this government is open to the committee’s suggestion of not just a minimum wage but a living wage.”
