Labour Gives FG 13 Days Ultimatum To Commence Full Implementation of the New Minimum Wage

After observing the attitude of the federal government of Nigeria with regards to the new minimum wage, the organized labor consisting of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) as given the federal govern 13 days to commence the full implementation of the minimum wage across all levels or face Mass action.

President Buhari had signed the minimum wage into law in the build-up to the 2019 general elections after pressures from labour and threats of industrial actions. He had also expressed his commitment to paying the new minimum wage so very few Nigerians suspected that his government was planning only a partial implementation.

The government has implemented the minimum wage for workers from level 6 and below but it is yet to commence full implementation of the law as announced by the minister of labor and employment Chris Ngige who has on several occasions frowned on the demand of the organized labour for a full implementation of the new minimum wage.

Organized labor had accused the government of dragging its feet over the new minimum wage which is considered to be overdue. As the 13 days given by the organized labor keep counting down, there are fears that the government may fail to comply thereby resulting in a showdown with the organized labor.
