New minimum wage: Bishop Onaiyekan makes fresh revelation about proposed N30,000

By - - [General ]

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, has identified a big problem with the agitation for a new minimum wage.

The cleric said the agitation may not yield its desired result because some people are benefitting from the present situation.

Onaiyekan spoke to reporters in Abuja at the First National Catechetical Summit organised by the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria.

The theme of the event was ‘Revamping the Catechetical Apostolate in Nigeria.’

According to him, “The whole issue about minimum wage is very problematic in Nigeria.

“I hope you all know that whenever there is increase in minimum wage, it is the poorest and lowest wage earners who don’t gain.

“If the government, for instance, agree on a minimum wage of N30,000, I’m told that when that happens, many people on grade levels 12, 13, 14 and 15 could get an increase of N200,000. Is it true? If it is true, then, there is something wrong.

“The agitation for minimum wage should be worked out in such a way that it really targets those who need it.

“Minimum wage should not be used as an excuse to increase the wages of those who are not even within the minimum wage bracket.

“What we understand by minimum wage is that nobody should be given a wage that is below the living wage.”
