The Nigeria Labour Congress organised a sensitisation rally across the country on Tuesday to warm up fr the November 6, nationwide strike.
The NLC is demanding for a new minimum wage of N30, 000, which the Federal Government has failed to pay.
Some of the state governors who are the critical stakeholders said on Tuesday that they could only afford to pay N22.500 minimum wage.
However, a senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has said that the country has the capability to pay N30, 000 minimum minimum wage and that he would add his voice to the clamour by the workers at the senate.
He said this on his twitter handle, as he commended the NLC’s nationwide mass protest.
As he put it, “Those who can pay 22k as minimum wage should just add 8k to make it 30k. Nigeria’s economy can sustain it.The struggle must continue.I will add a strong voice of solidarity to this on the floor of the senate.”
