Federal Government Denies Wale Edun’s Alleged N105,000 Minimum Wage Proposal

June 6, 2024




The Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, has refuted claims circulating about an alleged proposal by the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Wale Edun, suggesting a new minimum wage of N105,000 for Nigerian workers.

Onanuga took to his X platform to clarify the misinformation, stating unequivocally that no such proposal has been put forward by Edun. He emphasized that the story being disseminated is both false and misleading.

In his post, Onanuga wrote: “The Honorable Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Wale Edun, has not proposed a N105,000 minimum wage. The contrary story being disseminated is false.”

This clarification comes amid widespread speculation and public discourse regarding potential adjustments to the national minimum wage. The alleged proposal had sparked significant interest and debate among workers and the general public, further amplified by recent labor union activities and strikes.

The misinformation appears to have originated from various media reports, but the prompt denial by the presidential adviser aims to set the record straight and prevent further dissemination of the false narrative.
