The Secretary-General of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN), Mr Basir Lawal, has demanded an increment from the current N18,000 to N46,000 as minimum wage for workers.

Speaking in Lagos on Wednesday, Mr Lawal said that the current N18, 000 minimum wage was no longer plausible with the worsening hardships facing civil servants.

The Sec-Gen revealed that the new wage being sought by workers was arrived at after the association’s meeting with the National Public Service Joint Negotiating Council (NPSJNC).

Mr Lawal urged the federal government to do the needful and show understanding with workers on their demand, to make life worth living for Nigerian civil servants.
