The Nigeria Labour Congress has rejected the N27,000 new national minimum wage adopted by the National Council of States on Tuesday.

The NLC Secretary-General, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

According to him, the council has no jurisdiction determining another amount after a Tripartite Committee had submitted its report.

“It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states,” he said.

However, Ozo-Eson said the NLC has scheduled an emergency National Executive Council meeting for Friday to weigh on the deadline given to government within which to submit an executive bill to the National Assembly.

The NLC scribe added that the Federal Government was only projecting a shutdown of the economy with its latest action.

“This is because workers should not be held responsible for any development after its NEC meeting on Friday,’’ he said.

Tip: If you ever have to park in a city at night, park in front of a bank. They're always lit up and have cameras everywhere.

Both NLC and FG are playing games with nigerians.

APC will keep on playing games with nigerians until their tenure is over. That is their strategy. Look at how they purposely removed 3k and also went to the back and told NLC not to accept so that the game won't be over

Buhari's government is evil. The man and his group of crooks are so insensitive to the plight of hardworking Nigerians. Labour too don't deserve any sympathy, I bet you that most of them are still supporting Buhari and screaming "Sai Baba." Suffering and Smiling.

Is less than $100 to much to be paid to as Nigerian worker at the end of the month?

It's a pity this is what our country has turn out to become.
How much is #30,000 that the government cannot afford to pay?
The inflation rate is not even making the current take home pay of many workers to fulfill its intended purposes.
Anyway, it is well.

APC government is the biggest deception ever seen.So after the constitutional recognized tripartite committee have arrived @ a minimum wage of 30k the goverment thereafter set up this useless committee to arrive @ this?
How much is Buhari feeding budget in Aso Rock again? How much does he takes to barb his bald head?
Yusuf Buhari crashed a #55M power bike right? Lawal Babachir stole #240M yet a free man today right?

Governors are living @ the expense of State workers. Receiving security votes they only keep on embezzling. Yet all of them can't pay a paltry 30k minimum wage?

With rising inflation and cost of living? Labour and Nigerian workers have entered one-chance
