Also confirming the agreement reached at the end of the negotiation, the President of the Trade Union Congress, Quadri, and its Secretary General, Musa-Lawal Ozigi said that the government could not afford to meet their earlier demand of N30,000 minimum wage, hence the agreement on percentage increase.

Their statement read, “We commend the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan, and her team for their sincerity. Though they argued that the government could not afford to meet our earlier demand of N30,000 minimum wage across board because of the economic situation in the country, we made them understand that some people could not be more Nigerian than others. If we are tightening our belts, government should also do so.”
