The last minimum wage (1)
ERIC TENIOLA, Lagos, Nigeria
The last minimum wage bill in Nigeria was signed on September 3, 1981, by President Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari (93). It was N125.00 per month, which is the equivalent of N45,000.00 now. At that time the dollar was equal to N1, so I can't understand why the government is refusing to pay a minimum wage of N30,000.00 per month now.
