Nigeria ‘failing’ to implement increased minimum wage

There has been a two-and-a-half year delay in implementing Nigeria’s new, increased minimum wage.

People in Nigeria are protesting, demanding a better minimum wage.

The federal government had agreed to nearly double the minimum wage – but some states claimed they could not afford to pay it.

Nigerian workers have taken to the streets, threatening to launch a crippling strike if the new minimum wage is not implemented.
