Adedoyin, who spoke at at a briefing in Ilorin, said the N30,000 which is currently a bone of conten-tion between organised labour and government is not sufficient to address the economic challenges facing the workers.

According to him, “the issue of N18,000 being paid workers as minimum wage with the current economic reality in Nigeria is inhumane, considering the fact that the workers too have families, and exten-ded relations to cater for.
