Anger As Nigerians React To Alleged Salary Offers By Nigerian States (Full List Below)

There is currently social media uproar by Nigerians over alleged claims on Nigerian states’ proposed minimum wages which is circulating on Twitter.

The figures, although unverified have triggered  online debates over state salary offers. As users react, questions arise about the authenticity and implications of these purported salary plans.”

A circulating claim on social media reveals the varying amounts each of Nigeria’s 36 states is proposing to pay as minimum wage, sparking a wave of reactions. While states like Lagos and Rivers offer higher wages at 75k and 80k respectively, others like Zamfara and Kogi propose much lower figures at 30k and 35k.

The disparity in proposed wages has drawn criticism and scrutiny, with some questioning the feasibility and fairness of the amounts offered. Borno’s pledge of 70k stands out, especially given its economic challenges and security issues.

Additionally, concerns are raised about states’ ability to honor previous wage agreements, with suggestions for regional autonomy and uniform wage standards. Social media users express disappointment, skepticism, and calls for equitable treatment of workers across the nation. The debate intensifies against the backdrop of ongoing negotiations between the federal government and labor unions, with governors asserting their states’ financial constraints.

As discussions continue, the proposed wage figures underscore broader issues of governance, economic disparity, and the welfare of Nigerian workers.
