New Minimum Wage: Labour unions hold protest, invade presidential villa



The Organised Labour Union on Tuesday invaded the presidential villa, Abuja in protest of review of new minimum wage.

The protest led by TUC president, Bobboi Kagama was tagged ‘National day of mourning’

Kaigama speaking to newsmen said: “The governors complaints of no equitable distribution of revenue in all states is not acceptable, as the governor of Lagos State is receiving same salary as the Governor of Kebbi state. We also need equity among workers salary.

“Equity is also good for the commoner. The minimum wage cannot take governors through out the week.

“N30,000 is by far less than value of N18,000 in 2011.Even the value of N18,000 in 2011 was valued at 50dollars but now is valued at less than 50dollars.

“Nigerian workers are not in charge of the economy and the government who increased the inflation rate for reasons best known to them.

“The same rate of inflation should be applied to the increase of minimum wage.No minimum wage no vote to any presidential or governorship candidate.”
