The Organised Labour has rejected President Bola Tinubu’s claims that an agreement has been reached on new national minimum wages in his nationwide broadcast to make Democracy Day.

In his national broadcast to mark the 2024 Democracy Day in Abuja on Wednesday, Tinubu had claimed that a consensus had been reached on the long-debated new minimum wage between the Federal Government and organised labour. He revealed that an executive bill will soon be sent to the National Assembly to formalise the new minimum wage agreement.

The acting President of Nigeria Labour Congress, Prince Adewale Adeyanju, in a statement on Wednesday, aid there was no agreement reached by the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage at the time negotiations ended on Friday, June 7, 2024.

Adeyanju stated that rather, two figures such as N250,000 from Organised Labour and N62,000 from the government and Organised Private Sector, were arrived at and ought to have been submitted to the President.

The labour leader asserted that anything to the contrary was not only doctored but won’t be accepted by Labour.
