Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has admitted that Nigerian workers are poorly paid.
Osinbajo stated this during the State House Press Corps end of the year seminar titled “Journalists and Retirement Plan”.
The event was held at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
He said public sector earnings must be scrutinised, with a view to determining the right wages for workers.
“Generally speaking people are poorly paid, so there is need to look at why people are poorly paid. Public sector earning must be looked at and determined what should be paid and what is right for people to earn,” Osinbajo remarked.
The vice president also added that all employers must be compelled to key into the contributory pension scheme.
