Minimum Wage: Anambra, Imo, Zamfara, Benue, Kano, Kogi governors refuse to pay

Civil servants have accused Anambra, Imo, Zamfara, Benue, Kano, and Kogi governors of refusing to pay the new minimum wage.

The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) said 10 states had not implemented the National Minimum Wage signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 18, 2019.

The association’s National President, Tommy Okon, disclosed this at a forum organised for the Labour Writers Association of Nigeria (LAWAN) on Thursday in Lagos.

The other states are Bauchi, Kebbi, Nasarawa, and Taraba.

According to him, some states have concluded negotiations but had yet to implement the new wage.

“Anambra and Taraba have concluded negotiations but have yet to implement; Bauchi, Benue, Kebbi, Kogi, Nasarawa, Kano, and Zamfara are in the negotiation stage,” said Mr Okon.

The labour leader added that negotiation had yet to start in Imo.

He urged the state governments to put the well-being of their workers into consideration.

The unionist also called for further upward review of salaries.

He also noted that governments should not renege on agreements reached with the organised labour for industrial peace and harmony to reign.

“Salaries are no longer to be negotiated,” he said.

Mr Okon called on the federal government to amend the 2014 Pension Act and expunge sections inimical to pensioners.

According to him, gratuity payment should be embedded in the act.

“There should be a provision to spell out that this act does not forbid the payment of gratuity by employers.

“The law should not be silent on important matters that affect life; gratuity affects life,” Okon explained.

Bag of RICE now 33k from 5k in 2015 and we still debating minimum wage of 18k

Should we even be debating this?? You’re paying 9k minimum wage in 2015 when rice was 5k and dollar to naira was 190naira and fuel was around 100naira but you’re finding it hard to increase the minimum wage or increae worker’s salary even when everything has increased exponentially.

Based on the inflation level rice being 5k when minimum wage was 9k, now that rice is 33k, I believe minimum wage should be around 50k or 60k and this shouldn’t even be up for DEBATE at all.

At this rate, workers in Nigeria will keep working on the same salary till they die while the good and items they’re working had to get will keep becoming unaffordable, so what is now the essence of working?

Why hasn't this thread entered its second page?

Is it because is not about Buhari or because Anambra and imo are in the list?

They don't have to be as rich as Lagos or Akwa Ibom to pay. If states like Ebonyi, Kwara and Osun that are not that financially buoyant in terms of federal allocation and IGR can pay, then the likes of Anambra and Imo have no excuses please. It's about getting their priorities right.
