The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has commented on the swift approval of a 300% increment for judicial officers by the Federal Government, urging the latter to use the same gusto to address the plight of other Nigerian workers.

The labour union said this in a post via its official X handle on Thursday.

The post reads, “See the speed of approval, Why not use the same speed for Nigeria Workers ??

“The last minimum wage Act has expired since April.

“#WE DEMAND A LIVING WAGE NOW!”

Remember Senate had on Wednesday, June 5 approved a bill that grants a 300 per cent salary increase for the country’s judicial officers at the federal and state levels.

The Upper Chamber approved the report presented by the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, and Legal Matters, chaired by Senator Mohammed Tahir Monguno (APC- Borno North), to the lawmakers.

This trails the consideration and adoption of an executive bill transmitted by President Bola Tinubu, which sought to prescribe improved salaries and allowances, and other fringe benefits for judicial officers and workers.
