60,000 Naira Minimum Wage To High Says Governors

Spread the love

Governors under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors Forum have rejected the proposed N60,000 minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

In a statement issued on Friday by the Director of Media and Public Affairs for NGF, Halimah Ahmed, the governors said the proposed minimum wage is too high and not sustainable.

NGF expressed concerns that if the N60,000 minimum wage is adopted, many states would allocate their entire Federal Account Allocation Committee funds to salaries, leaving no resources for development projects.

The statement read in part, “The Nigeria Governors’ Forum is in agreement that a new minimum wage is due. The Forum also sympathises with labour unions in their push for higher wages.

  1. The Governors should try and adjust to it, the masses are really suffering too. They can manage the situations more.
    My humble opinion.
