The Nigeria Labour Congress has given a strong indication that it would press for the inclusion of a clause which would prescribe sanctions for governors and local government administrators who failed to implement the new minimum wage.
The National Treasurer of the NLC, Hakeem Ambali, who disclosed this in an interview in Abuja on Sunday, said the refusal of state governors to pay the current minimum wage was a result of a lack of punitive measures in the Minimum Wage Act of 2019.
Meanwhile, the 37-member Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage appointed by the Federal Government will hold a meeting this week to debate proposals by stakeholders on the new minimum wage.
Recall that President Bola Tinubu through his Vice-president, Kashim Shettima, had on January 30,2024 inaugurated the 37-member panel on the new minimum wage.
