Group Urges Tinubu To Approve Living Wage For Nigerian workers


As Nigerians mark 25 years of unbroken democracy, a socio-political group, “The Collective Movement’’, has appealed to the President Bola Tinubu’s to improve the welfare of the country’s workforce with a living wage.

The group said in a statement by its Director of Media, Ndubuisi Nwachukwu, on Wednesday, that the plight of Nigerian workers was now unbearable and called for urgent attention.

Nwachukwu said the government should come up with a living wage now it was negotiating with the labour unions to forestall total collapse of the economy.

He reminded the government to use the auspicious time of the country’s national celebration to reflect on issues badgering the society, especially hunger and insecurity.

Nwachukwu noted that the current cost of food items and transportation fares, caused by the increase in petroleum products pump prices among others, had made the lives of the citizens extremely difficult.

He said that if urgent actions were not taken to reduce the suffering of workers, and indeed Nigerians, the nation was likely to lose more of its loyal and dedicated workforce to other countries that were readily waiting to offer them greener pastures.
