SO BAD!!! Nigerian Employees Cannot Purchase Essential Goods

Hon. Dhikrullahi

According to Hon. Adedeji Dhikrullahi Olajide, the chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the average Nigerian worker can no longer afford basic necessities like rice and other food products.

Olajide, who is the federal constituency representative for Ibadan North-West/Ibadan South-West in Oyo State, took use of the occasion to demand an immediate revision of the nation’s minimum wage.

The senator, who was elected on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform, insisted that the minimum salary of Naira per month is egregiously low for the typical Nigerian worker.

On Wednesday, he made these statements on the green chamber floor in Abuja.

The congressman bemoaned the fact that the typical Nigerian worker’s take-home pay is insufficient to even purchase a bag of rice, let alone cover their basic expenses.

He pointed out that the government must examine the minimum wage to reflect the current state of the economy given the nation’s present economic reality.

In order for our employees to contribute to the expansion and advancement of our nation, he continued, it is imperative that we make sure they are paid fairly and are inspired.
