The Nigeria Labour Congress has rejected the N27,000 new nationwide minimal wage adopted by the National Council of States on Tuesday.
The NLC Secretary-General, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, made this recognized to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
According to him, the council has no jurisdiction determining one different amount after a Tripartite Committee had submitted its report.
“It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states,” he said.
However, Ozo-Eson said the NLC has scheduled an emergency National Executive Council meeting for Friday to weigh on the deadline given to authorities inside which to submit an govt bill to the National Assembly.
The NLC scribe added that the Federal Government was solely projecting a shutdown of the monetary system with its latest movement.
“This is because of staff should not be held liable for any enchancment after its NEC meeting on Friday,’’ he said.
