The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called on the Bola Tinubu-led administration to align itself with the demands of Organized Labour.

In a statement at the weekend by its president, Pedro Obi, NANS stood in solidarity with the labour unions in their call for an increase in the national minimum wage.

While citing current economic hardship, the student body noted that NLC demand is justified.

The statement reads: “We urge the Federal Government to respond promptly and favourably to the legitimate demands of Nigerian workers.

“The current economic realities have significantly eroded the purchasing power of the average Nigerian worker. Inflation, the rising cost of living, and the continuous devaluation of the naira have made it increasingly difficult for many families to meet their basic needs.”
