The Nigeria Labour Congress has demanded N794,000 as the new national minimum wage for workers in the South West geopolitical political zone.

The PUNCH reports that the NLC in the south west, through the chairperson of the Lagos State chapter of the NLC, Funmi Sessi, made the demand during her presentation at the ongoing public hearing of the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage in Ikeja, Lagos on Thursday.

According to her, the demand was jointly agreed on by all the members of the union in the south west.

In January, the federal government inaugurated a 37-member panel on the new minimum wage in the Council Chamber of the State House in Abuja to review the old minimum wage and recommend a new one for the country.

The review became necessary following the high inflation rate that followed the removal of fuel subsidies and the unification of the country’s exchange rates.
