Its General Secretary, Mr. Peter Essom, had told THISDAY on telephone that if the president fails to submit the bill for the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage by December 31 as demanded by Labour, they would have no option than to proceed with the protest scheduled for January 8.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) has expressed displeasure over what it described as false assertion that governors are refusing to pay the N30,000 national minimum wage as demanded by workers.
The statement read in part, “State governors are making concerted efforts to improve education, health and infrastructure and for this, would not, therefore, dedicate their states’ entire resources to workers salaries alone, knowing that workers constitute less than five per cent of the nation’s population.”
