Minimum wage implementation must start now, NLC demands



Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) wants government at all levels to immediately commence the implementation of the new national minimum wage, saying government can no longer hide under protracted negotiation with workers on consequential adjustment to delay the implementation.

Rising from its National Executive Council meeting, the Congress expressed concern over rising cases of insecurity in the country and resolved to organise a national security summit to discuss and proffer solution to the security issues in the country.

In a communique signed by its President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba and outgoing General Secretary, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson the Congress expressed worries over the continued delay by the Federal Government and other tiers of government in the implementation of the new national minimum wage of N30, 000 as recently enacted.
