Nigeria Labour Congress fight for increased wages

ABUJA – Unions in Nigeria are campaigning to increase the country’s minimum wage.

It’s currently set at just over R700 a month.

Union leaders say this is unacceptable, as food inflation is currently at 19.3 percent.

They want the minimum wage increased to around R2,000.

Last week, Nigeria’s house of representatives passed a bill, calling for a review of the minimum wage every five years.

Like South Africa, Nigeria is currently in a recession.
