NLC accuses FG of Foot dragging on proposed N56,000 minimum wage

The Nigeria Labour Congress has accused the Federal Government of intentionally delaying the constitution of a tripartite committee expected to deliberate on the proposed N56, 000 minimum wage.

The President of the NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, warned that Nigerian workers would not wait indefinitely for the government to constitute the crucial committee in view of the harsh economic situation in the country and its effect on workers.

The organised labour had in April 2016 proposed a review of the minimum wage from N18,000 to N56, 000.
