The said minutes was reported to have been presented to the Presidents by members of the organized labour.

The polity has been heated due to the disagreement between the proposed minimum wage by the Federal Government and the reported agreed figure of N30,000 presented by the organized labour.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has denied reaching an agreement to increase the minimum wage to N30,000 but the labour leaders claimed that was the agreement reached by the committee.

It was disclosed the Presidency requested to see the documents in order to know the true state of issues regarding the matter.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, the organized labour threatened to embark on another strike come November 6 if the Federal Government fails to accede to their request.
