Minimum wage: Primate Ayodele speaks on NLC’s demands

Meanwhile, Primate Ayodele, a prominent religious leader, has said the organised labour’s demand for N494,000 as the new minimum wage from the federal government is unrealistic.

The spiritual leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, said this while reacting to the NLC’s request from the federal government.

The cleric maintained that the highest government can pay without hitches is N60,000, adding that what the NLC was asking for was unachievable because an increase in salaries would lead to an increase in inflation and cost of living.
