Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has expressed doubts about the implementation of a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers in May 2024. TUC President, Comrade Festus Osifo, expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of progress in negotiations with the federal government.

He specifically called out Delta, Imo, and Benue states for their failure to fulfill their obligations of paying the wage awards or providing palliatives to their workers. Osifo criticized the approach of certain state governors towards fulfilling wage obligations and distributing palliatives, highlighting the economic hardship faced by the country.

While palliatives can provide immediate relief, they are not a permanent solution to the economic downturn. Osifo emphasized the need for a sustainable and robust solution that would meet the needs of Nigerian workers and the masses.

Some states, such as Borno, Oyo, Lagos, Kaduna, Rivers, Yobe, Bayelsa, Ebonyi, and the Federal Capital Territory, have been commended for their efforts in payment of wage awards and implementing palliatives. However, states like Benue and Anambra have been criticized for doing nothing to address the economic challenges and uplift the plight of workers.

Delta, despite being the state that receives a significant allocation from the federation account, has also been singled out for its lack of action. Osifo expressed surprise at the inaction of the Delta State Governor, considering the state’s financial resources.

The TUC is urging state governors to fulfill their obligations and work towards finding sustainable solutions to the economic challenges faced by Nigerian workers.
