The Federal Government (FG) has moved to avert the impending strike on Tuesday by convening a meeting with leaders of the organized labour and other stakeholders from the tripartite committee in a bid to review the new national minimum wage.
The organized labour has insisted on an upward review of the current minimum wage to N30,000 with an industrial action to commence on Tuesday if the FG fails to implement their demands.
The representatives from the organized labour include Ayuba Wabba, the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), some officials of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), as well as the Chairman of the National Income and Wages Commission (NIWC).
Atiku Bagudu, Governor of Kebbi State, and Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, were at the meeting as well.
The meeting is holding behind closed doors meeting, after which the media will be briefed on the outcome.
