FG should increase the minimum wage to N75,000. President Tinubu cannot dictate the salaries of Nigerian lawmakers — Reno Omokri educates Nigerians

Reno Omokri has said FG should increase the minimum wage to N75,000, as he educates Nigerians that  President Tinubu cannot dictate the salaries of Nigerian lawmakers.

In my opinion, the Federal Government should increase their offer to at least N75,000. I understand that the Organised Private Sector says they can only pay #60,000 a minimum wage, but let them bend over backwards. If they make that offer and the Nigerian Labour Congress still insists on their unrealistic #494,000, then Nigerians will see that the government have done their best and the NLC is only playing political games, and will shift their support away from the NLC.

If a level 1 civil servant will earn #494,000, then how much will those in higher levels earn? Will that not bankrupt Nigeria? Let us think this through. More money without more production is equal to more problems.

And, the N75,000 should not be fixed. It should be adjusted every two years to take into account inflation. If not, we will be in the same place in two years, and the cycle will continue. Patriotic elements within the NLC should use their influence to get Labour to see reason. N494,000 is unreasonable. They know it. You know it .I know it.

President Tinubu CANNOT dictate the salaries of Senators or Representatives. They are a separate, independent and self-financing arm of government. They can even impeach the President. The President cannot even determine Judges salary. If the NLC is not happy with their pay, then they should face them. They should not make the rest of us pay for their beef with
Senators or the National Assembly. Ask for something reasonable, like N75,000, and almost 100% of the populace will support you.
