New minimum wage: Governors hold un-expected meeting Tuesday

The Chairman, Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF), Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara, has said governors will hold a emergency meeting Tuesday, to talk about the nationalnew minimum wage law and think of a position.

Yari uncovered this while talking with State House journalists on the issue, after an extended Economic Management Team meeting at the Presidential Villa on Monday in Abuja.

“The situation of the governors isn’t obvious to some of you– that we will pay the sum however the issue is the capacity– the muscle to pay.

“We talked about that legislature has a few numbers and in the end the board of trustees has given a few recommendations however the governors have not turned out with any sum. No work, no compensation strategy: Labor undermines to report FG to ILO. Along these lines, tomorrow, we will talk about with governors and say: take a gander at what work is sending.

“Take a look at the bill that was coordinated by the minister and work to be sent to the NGF’s secretariat so we can process the substance of the bill; examine it and think of our situation as governors since we are basic accomplices on this,” Yari said.

A dispatch issued toward the finish of its crisis meeting and marked by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba and the General-Secretary, Peter Ozo-Eson, direct labour to begin an uncertain across the nation strike from November 6.
