The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige said Nigerians will not die but will adjust to the economic hardships in the country.
The minister who in a statement issued on Sunday noted that economic hardships were not peculiar to Nigeria alone but to the world at large also noted that the agitation by workers for more wages was not peculiar to Nigeria.
Punch newspaper reports that Ngige described the trend as a worldwide phenomenon caused by global economic shocks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war.
Speaking after receiving the Business Day “Excellence in Public Service Award” in Abuja, the Minister noted that the labour sector world over faces threats from multiple and overlapping economic crises, giving rise to the clamour by workers for more wages.
