Factual Reportage

Representative of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday, stormed out of the minimum wage triapatriate committee meeting, after rejecting the Federal Government offer of N45,000 new wage.

Recall that the organized labour had earlier made a demand of N615,000 as the new minimum wage, even as it has given the government up till May 31 to conclude negotiations on new living wage.

It was gathered that organized Labour got angered upon hearing the federal government offer of N45,000 as against the N615,000, it had demanded.

Expressing their anger, a representative of the NLC, professor Theophilus Ndubuaku, told Vanguard that, “we asked whether the N45,000 is for transport, food, clothing, housing or for what.

“So we just told them that since they are not serious, we better just leave, so we stormed out of the place.”

He said that the government offer was presented to them by the Permanent Secretary, Secretary to the Government of the Federation Office.
