  2. Na today I no say labour union no get sense. The federal government is committed to a minimum way that is higher than 60,000 naira and they signed? When there is no specific increase as to what the actual minimum wage will be? Hahahahahaha now I see why tinubu was able to win the election. Nigerians are smart but not intelligent. Cunny man die, Cunny man bury am. Labour union will learrrnnnn the hard way.

    2. This crossed my mind. Yeye.

    3. They have not called off the strike yet
      The agreement is a commitment to negotiate for over 60k

  3. I pray it comes to a good end especially for workers and Nigeria people. NEPA we need you too my phone battery is low.

  4. So, work continues. My own is that PHCN should restore power supply.

    1. Na that one dey pain people pass for this strike

  5. Nepa own na him pain people pass? Abeg they should have mercy and come to agreement and end all these..

  6. Nonsense! Strike wey don manage dey effective..una misuse am. Who calls off strike based on empty promises. Committed to going above 60,000 can even mean 60,200 naira. This thing jst vex me.

  7. I wonder why NLC can't tell FG to be specific, which one is minimum wage higher than 60k? If not for NEPA wey join, I for like the strike to continue.

    1. Anon,I swear... Nah Nepa own pain me pass

      E remain small dem for steal my phone for where I go charge yesterday 🤣🤣🤣if not I for don dey collect second drip for hospital by this time because my phone means everything to me ooo

    2. 😂😂 Nepa is affecting everyone truly and they know it that is why they joined. But It won’t be bad if the government makes it N100,000. A figure achievable and wouldn’t affect the government, but then ????????

  8. I just hope states workers will also benefit from this.

    NEPA, they have called off the strike can you please tell Raimi to on light back? Wucked somebody, when others were sleeping,Raimi dey off light for 2am

  9. They should be specific about the amount but to be sincere labor really tried this time around, phcn should please restore the light.

  10. What a cunning promise, what if it's 61k or highest 65k? Na wah o, federal government just play them.
