Worker’s Days of Financial Stress are Over – Tinubu Assures

The workforce of the country has been reassured by President Bola Tinubu that their days of worry are over as the problems that hindered the Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage from reaching a consensus would shortly be overcome.

President Tinubu gave the assurance to workers during his speech as Special Guest of Honor at this year’s May Day Commemoration ceremony at Eagle Square, Abuja, on Wednesday, May 1.  He also stated that his administration is more receptive to the Tripartite Committee’s living wage above the minimum wage.

Vice President Kashim Shettima who represented the president at the function, said;

“You would recall that on January 30th, 2024, the Federal Government convened a 37-member Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage. The committee’s mandate was to provide counsel and suggest a national minimum wage that aligns with our current economic conditions.

“Since then, the committee, in collaboration with labour leaders, has been diligently working towards proposing a new National Minimum Wage. Unfortunately, despite concerted efforts, the committee was unable to reach a consensus at its last meeting. This shall be resolved soon and I assure you that your days of worrying are over.

“Indeed, this government is open to the committee’s suggestion of not just a minimum wage but a living wage.

“Great Nigerian Workers, we cannot achieve a just and equitable society that caters to the needs of every member, including the strong and the weak, without fostering peace and unity. Our shared vision for national growth and development can only be realised in an atmosphere of industrial harmony and peaceful coexistence in every segment of our country. The dividends we have promised the nation, and which you work tirelessly to ensure, can only be achieved when we all unite for progress.

“The success of our government’s policies and programmes hinges on the willingness of the workers, as the backbone of our workforce, to embrace them wholeheartedly. I appeal to you to continue using the power of the labour movement for the greater good of our nation, fostering harmony and cooperation”, the President said.
