Breaking: NLC rejects N27,000 minimum wage

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected the N27,000 new national minimum wage adopted by the National Council of States (NCS) on Tuesday, January 22.

Dr Peter Ozo-Eson, the NLC general secretary, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

According to him, the council has no jurisdiction determining another amount after a Tripartite Committee has submitted its report.

“It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states,” he said.

Ozo-Eson, however, said the NLC has called an emergency National Executive Council meeting for Friday, January 25, to weigh on the deadline given to government within which to submit an executive bill to the National Assembly.

The NLC general scribe added that the federal government was only projecting a shutdown of the economy with its latest action.
