He said:

“Any amount below N250,000.00 cannot be considered a decent wage for Nigerian workers considering the present socio-economic hardship in the country.”

Minimum wage: Tinubu accused of double standard

In a statement in Abuja, Frank accused the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration of applying double standards in fixing salaries, saying what is good for judicial officeholders is good for Nigerian workers.

According to the Bayelsa-born political activist, Tinubu recently sent a Bill to the National Assembly in which he proposed a 300 per cent increase in the salaries and allowances of Supreme Court Justices, Appeal Court Justices, the President of the National Industrial Court, Judges of the Federal and State High Courts, and Grand Khadi of State Sharia Courts, among others, in the country.

He noted that the Bill was hurriedly passed as proposed by the President in both chambers of the National Assembly and is now awaiting the President’s assent to become enforceable law.
