Nigerian unions have stopped a nationwide strike after the government pledged to raise the minimum wage to 60,000 naira ($40) per month.

Despite falling short of the union’s demand for $330, the offer represents a significant increase from the current wage.

The strike, which began on Monday, caused widespread power outages and disrupted various sectors.

Although some workers feel the offer is insufficient, negotiations will continue in hopes of reaching a permanent solution.

If talks fail, unions have threatened to resume the strike in a week.
