Nigerians Are Startled As South Africa Increases Minimum Wage

Some Nigerians opine that the country is in a perpetual struggling state. Struggling to combat insecurity, poverty, infrastructure maintenance, sustainable economic development, education…the list is endless.

The constant row between opposing factions and rivals and the EFCC constantly announcing eye-popping figures allegedly looted and seized from fraudulent people has become the norm.

While the citizenry is clamouring for higher wages through the representing unions and the government wailing that the coffers are empty hence seeing the increase in wages as financially grounding the nation, South Africa announced an increase in the minimum wage to N126, 480.

Like a splash of cold water on the face on a chilly morning, some Nigerians are startled into bemoaning the state of the nation and when it will all end.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter.
