Minimum Wage: Organised Labour meets with Nigerian government

Members of the organized labour unions in Nigeria have converged on the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in Abuja, for a meeting to finalize negotiations over the new minimum wage.

The president of the Nigeria Labour Congress, his general secretary and some representatives of the Trade Union Congress, as well as the chairman of the National Income and Wages Commission, are present for the meeting.

Also present is the Governor of Kebbi State, who is one of the governors’ representatives in the tripartite committee and the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige.

The meeting comes barely 24 hours after the labour leaders boycotted a meeting convened by the Federal Government.

It is expected to be a closed-door meeting, after which the media will be briefed on the outcome.
