Baring last minute changes, President Bola Tinubu will announce a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers next week.
President of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Comrade Festus Osifo, disclosed this while speaking on the outcome of the union’s Tuesday meeting with the federal government on the fuel subsidy removal.
Recall that the TUC had given the federal government a two-week ultimatum to address its demands or risk industrial action from workers across the country.
Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday evening, Osifo noted that the minister of labour, Simon Lalong, told them he had met with President Tinubu and the minister of finance, Wale Edun.
Osifo said Lalong told the union that the issue of wage had been reviewed adding that President Tinubu would speak on the matter in the coming days.
