They had threatened that if the Federal Government failed to come up with a reasonable amount by today, then an industrial action is imminent.

Recall that the Federal Government declared that it would not shift grounds from the proposed N60,000 minimum wage offer.

In an address on May 29, Minister of State for Labour, Nkiruka Onyejeocha said:

“In light of the current economic conditions, we have made a concessionary move from N57,000 to N60,000.

“This is the path that this government has chosen to pursue, and we will not deviate or stray from the course.”
