No decision taken on minimum wage yet – NLC

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has denied demanding for a N500,000 new minimum wage.

President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, stated this while speaking to Punch.

Ajaero insisted that the N500,000 and N700,000 being proposed as the new minimum wage are unknown to the NLC.

According to him, all the figures flying around should be disregarded because the NLC as a body has yet to adopt a common presentation on the new minimum wage.

He said, “The N500K, N700K you are hearing are being collated at the level of the states. In Lagos and other places, I think they are about N700,000 while in other places they are talking about N500,000, which are inputs collated from geopolitical zones.

“But the NLC secretariat has not made any presentation, these minimum figures are what is coming from the states. When we collate them then we’ll do a central presentation based on these raw materials we are getting from states.”
