It’s A Fight To Finish:Minimum Wage

KADUNA – NATIONAL Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, has said labour will battle governors and other employers who refuse to pay the N18,000 new minimum wage to submission.

General Secretary of the union, Comrade Issa Aremu, said the call by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, for the removal of subsidy on petroleum products as a precondition for the implementation of the Minimum Wage Act had taken the nation back to the era of military dictatorship.

Aremu, who is also Vice- President of NLC, in a statement, titled “No” to policy dictatorship by governors,” said: “The governors under the aegis of NGF should face up to the challenge of governance which the new minimum wage poses in their respective states instead of arm-twisting a newly-elected President to pursue unpopular policies capable of promoting instant mass disaffection.”
