Even though the money seemed to have increased by 12,000 Naira, realist compare the difference in the new minimum wage vs the old minimum wage in dollars and there are some hard truths to accept.

Years back, what you could afford with 18,000 is nearly impossible to get with 50,000 Now.

Can we say the 30,000 is the best government can offer?

Our Senators and executive members can’t even fuel their car with 30k
