Lawmakers should be on minimum wage to experience what Nigerians are facing, says NLC member

Bamgbose Betty, chairman of the medical and health workers union of Nigeria, says the country’s legislators should be placed on minimum wage.

On Friday, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) declared an indefinite strike over the federal government’s refusal to increase the minimum wage.

The strike commenced on Monday, with total compliance by all government institutions across the country.

On Tuesday, organised labour suspended the strike after its leadership reached an agreement with the federal government on a minimum wage threshold.


Speaking on the issue, the former treasurer of the NLC said the federal government should not delay on the minimum wage demand.
