Minimum Wage: Tinubu To Meet With Organised Labour On Thursday 

President Bola Tinubu will on Thursday July 11th meet with the Organised Labour in Abuja to have further discussions on a new minimum wage for workers in Nigeria.

A top source from the labour told Channels Television that those invited are leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) to the meeting expected to be held at the Aso Villa.

He said the president is expected to make decisions on the ₦62,000 proposal of the government and private sector side; as well as the ₦250,000 demand of the Organised Labour.

The Thursday meeting is coming about a month after the President said in his Democracy Day speech on June 12, 2024, that an executive bill on the new national minimum wage for workers would soon be sent to the National Assembly for passage.

On June 25, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) chaired by the President stepped down from consideration and deliberation on the memo on the new minimum wage to allow for more engagement with stakeholders.
