Minimum Wage: I Can’t Afford To Pay N100000 To Each Of My 4 Drivers – SGF Akume

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, has lamented that the wage increase demands being made by organised labour are not realistic.

Akume spoke in Abuja on Thursday, June 6, during a meeting with the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

He addressed the Christian community for support as the tripartite Committee on minimum wage continues negotiations.

While speaking, he said paying a minimum wage of N100,000 to his drivers will be a difficult responsibility.

“I can’t afford to pay my driver one hundred thousand because they are four,” Akume lamented. “And these other people, dependents.”

He went on to complain about the demands being made by the organised labour, adding, “Where do we get that money from?”
