Minimum Wage: NLC Insists On Prolonged Strike From Jan 8

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has insisted on embarking on a prolonged strike from January 8 should government fails to implement the new N30,000 National Minimum Wage.

Its National President Comrade Ayuba Wabba told our correspondent that the strike will become inevitable should the government fail to do the needful.

He appealed to workers across the nation to support the action to succeed in the interest of their social and economic prosperity.

Wabba called on Federal Government to urgently transmit the bill on the new national minimum wage to the National Assembly for.

“It is unfortunate that the Federal Government is yet to transmit to the National Assembly an executive bill for the enactment of N30, 000 as the new national minimum wage, he said.

“Government’s dilly-dallying on the issue has strained Government-Labour relations with a potential for a major national strike which could just be days away.

“I want to appeal to the government to do the needful by urgently transmitting the bill on the new national minimum wage to the National Assembly.

“We also would like to use this same opportunity to urge workers to fully mobilise for a prolonged national strike and enforce their right.”
