In other news, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has congratulated Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s 63rd Independence Anniversary.
In his nationwide broadcast speech on Sunday morning, the Nigerian leader hailed the nation’s past heroes, founding fathers and mothers for their struggles for liberation which, according to him, brought about today’s modern Nigeria.
While being optimistic about a better Nigeria, Tinubu declared that for the next six months, the average low-grade worker would receive an additional N25,000 per month.
He noted that his administration is introducing a provisional wage increment to enhance the federal minimum wage without causing undue inflation.
This is even as the Nigerian leader promised a thorough housecleaning of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), which he described as the den of malfeasance, adding that his special investigator will soon present his findings on past lapses and how to prevent similar reoccurrences.
