Workers’ rights organizations, Cee Hope Nigeria and Roxa Luxemburg Foundation have called on the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to consider domestic workers as they negotiate for a new minimum wage for public servants in the country.

The founder of CeeHope Nigeria, Betty Abah in an exclusive interview cried out the hardship faced by domestic workers in Nigeria despite being paid what she described as ‘meager wages’.

According to her, domestic workers deserve a living wage that can take care of their needs.

“It is about women’s rights and the vulnerable community.

“This part of our campaign is to spotlight the working conditions of domestic workers in Nigeria. As you know, the condition of domestic workers is parasitic.

“We are working on the unionization of domestic workers so they can assert their rights.

“In Nigeria, most domestic workers render services round the clock, which is not supposed to be so.

“Many have died, some unable to go to school and become not useful to themselves.

“Domestic workers should have minimum wage, not a meager wage and should be given the same rights like every other mainstream worker in Nigeria”, she stated.

Earlier, Dr. Claus-Dieter König, the Regional Director of Roxa Luxemburg Stiftung West Africa, said domestic workers have the right to be unionized like every worker in the world.
