Labour Gives Otti 14-day Ultimatum Over Payment Of N30,000 Minimum Wage by Basic123: 8:32pm On May 26
The organized Labour in Abia state has handed a 14-day ultimatum to Governor Alex Otti, to ensure full payment of the N30,000 national minimum wage and the N35,000 palliative wage award approved by the federal government for workers in the state.

In a letter addressed to Governor Otti, by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Abia state council and Trade Union Congress, TUC, Abia state council, the organized Labour requested that the N30,000 former national minimum wage and the N35,000 wage award approved by the federal government 8 months ago for workers be paid without further delay to Abia workers

Labour also noted that a committee was set up to produce a salary structure based on the N30,000 former national minimum wage which the state government failed to implement.


In the letter, signed by the Comrade Ogbonnaya Okoro and Comrade Emma Alozie , Abia NLC Chairman and Secretary, respectively; Comrade Eneogwe Ihechi and Comrade George Okogbue, Abia TUC Chairman and Secretary, respectively; and Chairman and Secretary of the Joint Negotiating Council, Comrade Innocent Ekwenye and Comrade Oby Maduako, respectively; the organized Labour explained that it relied on the national organized Labour meeting held in Abuja on Monday ,May 20,2024.

The letter read; “Consequent upon the meeting held by the national labour leadership on Monday,May 20,2024,which the state councils were directed to issue 14 day ultimatum to various state governments who have not implemented the N30,000 former minimum wage and N35,000 palliative wage award.


“Furtherance to the directive,the organized labour in the state comprising the NLC,TUC and JPSNC,met on Wednesday, and noted with dismay the various challenges facing labour unions and their members in the state.

“These include non implementation of the former national minimum wage to Abia Non implementation of the N35,000 palliative wage award to Abia workers. The organized labour observed with utmost regret that from 2019 till date ,the Abia state government has failed to fully implement the national minimum wage as agreed upon by the organized Labour, government and employers in the private sector and gazetted by the federal government. Since the state government has continued to shun every attempt for further discussion on the minimum wage.

“The organized labour also critically viewed the issue of non implementation of the N35,000 palliative wage award 8 months after its announcement by the state government as disheartening and this has dampened the moral of workers in the state.

“Since government is a continuum, Your Excellency, you are humbly requested to put in place necessary machinery to kick start the process of implementing in full the N30,000 former national minimum wage and the N35,000 wage award within 14 days in line with the directive of the joint NEC meeting of the NLC and TUC.”

So Abia state governor can not pay common 30k while Edo state governor is already paying 70k.

I honestly don't think any state governor should have any reason not to pay a minimum of 30k the state civil servants right now because the monthly allocation of each state has almost tripled since the removal of fuel subsidy.

Oti can do better.

According to PETHIEF GRIEVING OBI philosophy of governance "There are many Aba roads to repair,paying a new minimum wage should not be a priority".

Even Anambra is not paying 30k minimum wage!

Otti is a gentle man

All those noise you dey hear...Na from Obidients that want to prove a point. NA JUST HYPING AND PACKAGING.

THE MAN HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING REASONABLE EXCEPT REPAIRING ABA ROAD AS IF HE IS JUST A COMMISSIONER FOR ABA ROADS.

I have been asking this question whenever Obidients want to force him on us as the best governor that..what are his performance in Education,health,agriculture,workers welfare....even the road construction self,Na just ABA trunk C roads!

I don't think Otti will be able to pay 30k for now because baba is busy constructing roads and other infrastructures in Abia state, and he needs money for all these.

So if abians want to enjoy the good life that they have been starved for decades they should not think about money now and focus on building their states.

Buhari called you guys lazy youths, and how right he was! So, you guys don't have brain enough to read up the parts that show that these labor failures were inherited from the previous government? Now, read this again from the Abia Labour leader...

Since government is a continuum, Your Excellency, you are humbly requested to put in place necessary machinery to kick start the process of implementing in full the N30,000 former national minimum wage

You can't reasonably expect Governor Otti to have solved in 1 year ALL the problems created by series of failed past governments in Abia. But I understand: it's your natural hatred for good things that is blinding you from seeing these obvious truths. Na wa for Nigerians!
