Organised Labour Accuses State Governors of Acting in Bad Faith Towards the New Minimum Wage Negotiations

The Organised Labour has tackled the state governors, accusing them of acting in bad faith towards the new minimum wage negotiations ongoing in the country.
Recall that the governors under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors Forum -NGF rejected the proposed N60,000 minimum wage for Nigerian workers. In a statement issued by the Director of Media and Public Affairs for NGF, Halimah Ahmed, the governors said the proposed minimum wage was too high and not sustainable.
The governors said if the N60,000 minimum wage is adopted, many states would allocate their entire Federal Account Allocation Committee funds to salaries, leaving no resources for development projects.
However, the Organised Labour through the Deputy National President of the Trade Union Congress, Tommy Etim faulted the NGF’s position, saying every part of the new minimum wage agreement should be implemented and any of the state governors who cannot pay it should resign.
