President Buhari Meets With State Governors Over Proposed N30,000 Minimum Wage
President Buhari today met with representatives of Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) over the disagreement between the organized labour and state governors on the proposed N30,000 minimum wage.
Recall that the Governors had a meeting in Abuja last week where they rejected the N30, 000 minimum wage being proposed by Labour, saying they would only approve it if they downsize the civil service, a position that has been rejected by the leadership of the labor unions.
In a bid to find a lasting solution to the faceoff on the minimum wage, President Buhari met with the governors of Zamfara, Lagos, Kaduna, and Enugu, while the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige was also in attendance. The outcome of the meeting has not yet been made public.
