CANAN- Wage Increase Negotiation Commendable But Retrenchment Not An Option

pastor oyesileExecutive Director of Christian Association of Nigerian Americans (CANAN), Dr. Ade Oyesile, has commended the on-going meeting between the Federal government and the Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC) over increase in national minimum wage for workers adding however that mass retrenchment is not an option.

In a statement by Williams Ekanem, media consultant to CANAN, the Executive Director pointed out that the Federal government must be commended for opting to sit at the negotiation table to even talk about salary increment in the face of harsh financial realities occasioned by oil price drop.

According to Oyesile, “ it surely shows that the government has the interest of the people and should therefore stop introducing the option of staff rationalization because if the federal government, the highest employer of labor cannot retain its staff, where would they run to when thrown out of job.”

Warning of the dire consequence of the mass retrenchment to the already sagging economy, Dr. Oyesile pointed out that government should rather be thinking of how to creatively engage the workers into revenue yielding activities such as commercial farming and involvement in the extractive industries.

The CANAN director also commended the NLC for calling off the nationwide strike action over the removal of fuel subsidy saying it would create an enabling atmosphere for labor to make its case. He added that since no meaningful dialogue can be achieved with strike action, the Federal government should use the window of opportunity to make a persuading case to the labor leaders and by extension the generality of Nigerians.

CANAN is the leading voice of Nigerian American Christians living in the United Sates with the mission to vigorously advocate for all Nigerians at home and abroad as well as mobilize Nigerians to participate in nation building process wherever they find themselves.

The Association has been in the forefront against anti societal activities and led the call for the classification of Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States in 2010 and held several rallies in USA cities to protests the kidnap of the school girls by the sect.
