2023: Labour Party Eyes N80,000-N100,000 Minimum Wage
Written by City Radio on December 8, 2022
The Labour Party says it would implement a minimum wage of N80,000-N100,000 if the party wins next year’s presidential election.
A few days ago, the Labour Party unveiled its manifesto after a long wait with its presidential candidate Peter Obi touting the payment of hourly wages as against the current monthly format in the country.
While speaking on a television program on Thursday, the party’s Deputy National Chairman Ayo Olorunfemi said the LP is looking at implementing a new minimum wage of between N80,000-N100,000 as against the N30,000 obtainable presently.
As far as he is concerned, the present N30,000 minimum wage does not reflect the realities, saying the Labour Party would pluck holes and exploit new ways to ensure the new wage structure is implemented if the party wins next year’s polls.
