BREAKING: President Tinubu Finally Appoints Keyamo As Minister

President Tinubu has finally appointed Keyamo as Minister.

News ToGo gathered that President Bola Tinubu replaced a ministerial nominee, Maryam Shetty. In her place, he chose two others, including Festus Keyamo and Dr Maigari Mahmud.

This was revealed when Senate President Godswill Akpabio read out a letter by the President at Friday’s plenary session.

Nigerians had mocked Keyamo after Tinubu did not give him any appointment. Keyamo missed out in the two ministerial nomination lists the Senate unveiled. Recall that Keyamo played a major role in the campaign council of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in the 2023 presidential election.

The former Minster of State for Labour and Employment was the Spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council. He was not only active but very vocal in fending off criticisms against Tinubu and APC. He also used his social media handle to give the campaign massive visibility as he constantly spoke in favour of Tinubu and the party.

Many people mocked him for not getting any appointment from the same Tinubu. They claimed that he had fought for the President in vain, but with this development, the tide has now changed. Keyamo must be very lucky to land a slot as a Minister as it was made possible by removing another person’s name to have him on board.

BREAKING: Finance Minister Pegs Minimum Wage At N105, 000, Submits It To Tinubu

Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Wale Edun, has proposed a new monthly minimum wage of N105,000.

News ToGo learned that Edun has also submitted the N105, 000 minimum wage proposal to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday.

President Tinubu is currently reviewing the proposal, and an official announcement is expected soon. This is in line with the dialogue the federal government had with the organised labour.

Earlier, the NLC and TUC had called for a worker’s strike in response to the government’s refusal to meet their demand for a higher minimum wage of N494,000.

However, after a day of striking, both parties returned to the negotiating table and reached an agreement. Following this, President Tinubu instructed Edun on Tuesday to develop a new minimum wage template by Wednesday.

BREAKING: Organized Labour Rejects Small Extra Amount By FG

The Organised Labour, consisting of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has unequivocally rejected any minor increase to the proposed ₦60,000 wage offer from the tripartite committee.

News ToGo reports that the TUC President Festus Osifo conveyed this stance during an appearance on Channels Television’s “Politics Today” program on Tuesday evening.

This announcement follows Organised Labour’s decision to suspend its nationwide strike, which began at 12:01 am on Monday and caused significant disruptions across various economic sectors. The strike was prompted by the unions’ dissatisfaction with the government’s handling of wage negotiations.

In the interview, Osifo emphasized that while the strike was paused to allow for further negotiations, the labour unions would not accept a nominal increase.

“Our decision to suspend the strike was made in good faith to allow for more constructive dialogue. However, any minor addition to the ₦60,000 initially proposed will not be acceptable to us,” Osifo stated.

The ongoing negotiations aim to establish a new minimum wage that reflects the current economic realities faced by Nigerian workers.

“At the meeting on Friday, the tripartite committee stated they would not add anything more to the ₦60,000, but in the meeting yesterday (Monday), Mr. President committed to doing more than ₦60,000,” Osifo said.

When asked if Labour would accept a small increase to the last offer from the tripartite committee, which includes the Federal Government, states, and the Organised Private Sector, the TUC president responded, “No. We made it clear that we won’t accept minor additions like ₦1, ₦2, or ₦3000 as they were suggesting. We have received some good assurances that they will offer something substantial.”

Osifo stressed that Organised Labour is not insisting on ₦494,000 as the new minimum wage but expects the tripartite committee to offer a wage that is economically realistic and aligned with current inflationary pressures.
