President Tinubu Announces Increment in Wage For Workers.
On Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu made an important announcement regarding wage increments for civil servants. In his nationwide address on Sunday morning, October 1st, President Tinubu unveiled a provisional wage hike aimed at benefiting the country’s low-grade workers for the next six months, resulting in an additional N25,000 per month.
President Tinubu’s decision to implement this wage increase was driven by his commitment to enhance the federal minimum wage without causing inflationary pressures. He addressed the nation, expressing his firm belief in Nigeria’s unity and existence, despite past doubts.
He stated, “Some have said that our country would be torn apart. They are forever mistaken. Here, our nation stands, and here we shall remain.”
Reflecting on Nigeria’s democratic journey, President Tinubu noted that this year marked a significant milestone with the seventh consecutive civilian government elected by Nigerians. He reiterated his promises to reshape and modernize the economy while ensuring the security and well-being of the citizens.
President Tinubu acknowledged the challenges associated with ending the fuel subsidy and adopting new foreign exchange policies but stressed the necessity of these reforms for a brighter future.

He stated, “Reform may be painful, but it is what greatness and the future require. We now carry the costs of reaching a future in Nigeria where the abundance and fruits of the nation are fairly shared among all, not hoarded by a select and greedy few.”
Despite the difficulties, President Tinubu assured citizens that his administration was committed to easing their burdens.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) distanced itself from reports of an agreement with the Federal Government to suspend a proposed indefinite strike. The strike was scheduled to commence on October 3 due to grievances related to the removal of petrol subsidies. The NLC emphasized that there was no agreement with the government and no set date for negotiations, clarifying that the matter extended beyond the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
