The president of the Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu has emphasized the need to review the monthly minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

He said the custodians of the nation’s machinery deserve a fair wage and enhanced welfare, and that a labourer is deserving of not just any reward but fair and commensurate wages.

According to him, his administration remains committed to improving the welfare of all workers.

“I affirm that my administration remains committed to improving the welfare of all workers, noting the various relief programmes, including the wage award and the imminent minimum wage review.”  Bola Tinubu said this in a congratulatory message to workers on workers’ day.

“I strongly believe that the custodians of the nation’s machinery deserve a fair wage and enhanced welfare, and that a labourer is deserving of not just any reward but fair and commensurate wages. I assure Nigerian workers of my dedication to not only improving their welfare but also enhancing their working conditions and providing the necessary tools for them to succeed.” The president assured.

Currently, the monthly minimum wage set by the Nigerian government since 2019  is 30,000 naira.

“I celebrate Nigerian workers across all spheres—from the clerical officer who ensures the proper documentation and distribution of correspondence; the security officer who remains ever dutiful through all seasons; the teacher who secures the future of our nation by imparting knowledge to the next generation; the doctor who works relentlessly to save precious lives, and to all Nigerian workers who keep the candle aflame.” He wrote.
