I Hope Those Castigating The FG Know That It Is Not Compulsory You Stay In The Employment -Omole

Dr. Charles Omole, an international legal expert and consultant, has advised those condemning the Federal Government (FG) for not adopting the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) demand of ₦615,000 as the minimum wage, resulting in a nationwide strike by the union.

His statement was contained in a post he made in his official X handle on Monday.

Omole stressed that it’s not compulsory for individuals to remain as a government worker if they’re unhappy with the offered wage. He said that employees have the constitutional right to resign and seek better-paying jobs elsewhere, rather than forcing the government to pay what it may not be able to afford.

Omole’s post reads:

“I hope those castigating the government know that it is not compulsory you stay in the employment of government. If you are not happy with the 60k offered as Minimum Wage; you can resign and go and get another better paying jobs elsewhere. You don’t have to stay where you are not being appreciated. You cannot force an employer to pay more than he feels he can afford. But you are free to resign and leave. It’s your constitutional right…..Séé Móré
