Due to the high inflation rate ravaging the world, the Federal Government of Nigeria said there are plans to increase the thirty thousand naira.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, revealed this at the Nigeria Labour Congress public presentation titled, “Contemporary history of working-class struggle” in Abuja.
He advised the executives of affiliate unions of the Nigeria Labour Congress to familiarise themselves with labour laws, saying that in the current economic situation, the current minimum wage of thirty thousand naira will not, in the present economic reality, pay workers’ transportation fares to work for a month.
He, however, added that plans are in place to convert the Michael Imoudu Institute of Labour Studies, Ilorin, Kwara State, into a degree-awarding institute.
