The Nigeria Labour Congress has blasted the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) for pegging the minimum wage at N22, 500.
The NLC subsequently pegged the minimum wage at N66, 500.
Ayuba Wabba, President of the NLC, said this at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.
Wabba said the NGF was not known to law and was thus an illegal body.
He said all governors should return to their respective states and consult with workers rather than hide under the umbrella of the governors’ forum.
Recall that the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Mr. Chris Ngige, on Wednesday also said the Federal Government has rejected the N22,500 minimum wage proposal by the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF).
Ngige stated this on Wednesday during a phone interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
“The governors have not even done enough. I told them that this N22,500 is even rejected by the Federal Government,” he said.
