Nevertheless, fillers coming in has it that the federal government of Nigeria has embarked on a lay back attitude on the subject matter.



The federal government has further proposed a retrenchment policy, to lay off a huge workforce, should the government approve the N30,000 minimum wage. 

According to unconfirmed sources, the federal government of has allegedly said that they is no enough money to finance N30,000 minimum wage for the Nigerian populace.
