Minimum Wage: Comedian I Go Die blasts Federal Government


Nigerian comedian, Francis Agoada, popularly known as I Go Die has said that Nigerian workers are the most used in the world.

This is coming after the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) on Tuesday agreed to pay a national minimum wage of N22,500 despite labour unions’ threat to embark on strike over the non-implementation of N30,000 proposed minimum wage.

However, the Federal Government has rejected the N22,500 minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF.
