At the ‘Public Hearing on National Minimum Wage for Nigerian Workers’, organised by the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage for the South-West zone in Alausa, Ikeja, yesterday, the organised Labour asked for a new minimum wage of N66,500.

Speaking was Agnes Sessi, the chairman, Political Committee , NLC , Lagos State, who presented the memoranda of the Nigerian Labour Congress, and the Trade Union Congress, she explained that, “Based on the current realities, the two labour unions want a new monthly national minimum wage of N66,500, which is approximately the average of the implied minimum wages derived under three approaches .”
“The approaches are: Comparative analysis based on minimum wages in some African countries, an estimate of the monthly minimum cost of providing basic needs to a family of six and two dependants , as well as an analysis based on rising cost of living over time .”

Responding to the proposed minimum wage was Governor Ambode Akinwunni who was represented by the state Head of Service , Folasade Adesoye, the governor said, “The issue , however , which I believe is more peculiar to the public sector , is striking a balance between what goes into recurrent expenditure — of which salaries and allowances are a major component — and the ability of government to fulfil its obligations to the larger society.”

However, the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria , Lagos branch , agreed with with the NLC and TUC in asking for N 66,500 new minimum wage. According the association, the upward review of the national minimum wage was long overdue.

Against this backdrop, Chairman, Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage and the Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu , who was represented by the Deputy Governor , Colonel Samaila Dabai ( retd .), assured that the tripartite committee would still organise more public hearings.
