  • Pay Minimum Wage Or Face Impeachment ! NLC Shoots At Governors
  • Pay Minimum Wage Or Be Impeached! NLC Shoots At Governors


    The Labour Congress has appealed to state Houses of Assembly to
    identify with workers by compelling governors to pay the new minimum wage.


    Emmanuel Ugboaja, General-Secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), made the appeal while fielding questions from journalists on Sunday in Lagos.

    According to Mr Ugboaja, any governor who refuses to pay the minimum wage should be impeached.

    Reports say that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum had said that the state governors would not pay beyond their individual capacities.

    However, the NLC scribe said that there was no basis for the governors to complain about payment of the N30,000 minimum wage.

    He said that they had the capacity to pay.

    “It is criminal to say you cannot pay the new minimum wage.

    “Some of these leaders ride in private jet, so they can pay,’’ Mr Ugboaja said.

    He said that the organised labour was in support of the return of the Labour Advisory Council, which would help to mediate between the government and workers.
