‘I Can’t Afford To Pay My Drivers 100k Per Month’ – SGF Laments NLC’s Minimum Wage Demands (Video)

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, has lamented that the wage increase demands being made by organised labour are not realistic.

Akume spoke in Abuja on Thursday, June 6, during a meeting with the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

He addressed the Christian community for support as the tripartite Committee on minimum wage continues negotiations.

While speaking, he said paying a minimum wage of N100,000 to his drivers will be a difficult responsibility.

He went on to complain about the demands being made by the organised labour, adding, “Where do we get that money from?”

 Recall Akume said the organised labour committed treason by shutting down the national grid during the nationwide strike.

  1. I am surprised that Senate has the effrontery to beg for the payment of.only35000naira only when each of the members take home is not less than 30m apart from other percucites. To solve partof the problems of the country the two houses should be placed on sitting allowance only. Their recently purchased exotic cars is more than enough to justify the request of Labour for 1m naira as minimum wage.
