‘N200k minimum wage or nothing’ – Protesting workers tell Tinubu

Protesting workers on the platform of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) are demanding the sum of N200,000 as the national minimum wage.

The protesters, who converged at Ikeja under-bridge in Lagos on Wednesday, were seen chanting solidarity songs and wielding various placards.

One of the workers decried the increasing cost of living adding that people were dying due to hunger.

“We have decided to go to Abuja to discuss with the government constructively by tendering our charter of demands which includes the national minimum wage to be put forward as N200,000 the four refineries must work and labour to be part of the supervisory committee. These demands are non-negotiable,” the worker said.

Politics Nigeria recalls that NLC had given the Bola Tinubu-led government a seven-day ultimatum with threats of a nationwide strike scheduled to commence on Wednesday, August 2, 2023.
