The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has reduced its proposed new minimum wage from N615,000 to N500,000 after failing to reach an agreement at the Tripartite Committee meeting on Tuesday. According to Prof. Theophilus Ndubuaku, Deputy President of the NLC, the decision was made to facilitate negotiations with the Federal Government.

In an exclusive interview with Aluta News, Ndubuaku expressed concerns that despite the reduction, the government is still stalling the negotiation process. He stated, “We have reduced our demand to N500,000, but we are not making progress at the moment.”

This development comes after Ndubuaku criticized the government’s lack of empathy towards the struggles of the masses, despite being aware of their hardships.

The Tripartite Committee meeting aimed to negotiate a new minimum wage, but the parties failed to reach an agreement, leading to the NLC’s decision to adjust its demand. The negotiations continue, with the NLC seeking a more acceptable minimum wage for workers.
