After a televised address to Nigerians on Wednesday, June 12 by President Tinubu on the readiness of the federal government to send the minimum wage offer to the national assembly for deliberation, the Nigerian Senate has appealed to the organised labour to accept the federal government’s minimum wage offer.

Senate leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, made the appeal in an Eid-el-Kabir message by his directorate of media and public affairs on Sunday, just as he highlighted some achievements of the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

The Federal Lawmaker representing Ekiti Central in the Senate, pleaded with the NLC and the TUC to accept whatever President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s led government offered them above N60,000 as the new minimum wage.

Senate leader, Sen Bamidele also assured that the current administration would leave no stone unturned in alleviating the economic hardship being faced by the majority of Nigerians and re-offer them a sense of pride in their home country.

According to Bamidele: “The federal government has conceded to N60,000, which translates to a 100 percent increase. But both NLC and TUC turned down this offer, leading to a two-day industrial action.

As the federal government reveals its new offer, I plead with the organised labour to accept it in the national interest. The economy will remain in this condition. Collectively, we are taking multi-pronged measures to reverse disturbing economic indicators.”


Meanwhile, the tripartite committee, comprising the federal government’s team, offered to pay Nigerian workers N62,000; organised labour rejected the offer and proposed N250,000.
