Minimum Wage: NLC Accuses Ngige Of Delay In Issuing Circular

Members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) are accusing the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, of delaying in issuing the circular for the minimum wage implementation.

The union disclosed this on Monday while staging a peaceful protest outside the Federal Secretariat in Abuja.

They also accused the minister of using thugs against them when they protested at his residence last week.

The National President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba who led the protest said “the minimum wage has been put into law, we don’t need to beg anyone for implementation.

“We are not going to see anybody for implementation, the President passed the bill on the 18th of April and it takes effect from that day.

“Let it also be on notice, that will not give any further notice or deadline on when our alert will be seen in our accounts which must be made public by the Federal Government”.

Aside from the minimum wage, the labour movement is also seeking clarification on why mister Frank Kokori who was initially appointed as the chairman of National Social Insurance Trust Fund in 2017 was replaced.
