New minimum wage: NLC blasts Nigeria Governors’ Forum, insists on N30,000

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has berated the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, for saying they cannot pay the proposed N30,000 minimum wage.

NLC wondered why the Governors should peg the minimum wage at N22, 500. The President of the NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, addressed a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday barely 24 hours after the Governors met and took the decision.

The NLC President said that the NGF was not “known to law and was thus an illegal body.” Wabba said the “governors should return to their respective states and consult with workers rather than hide under the umbrella of the governors’ forum.”
