According to Western Post, the new proposal suggests a minimum wage of N105,000 (approximately $220) per month for Nigerian workers.

Tinubu is currently reviewing this proposal, and an official announcement is expected soon.

This development follows a recent strike by Labour Unions, which began on Monday after their meeting with the National Assembly leadership failed to produce a satisfactory outcome.
