Governors' Forum calls Emergency Meeting over Minimum Wage | BellaNaija

Governor Abdulaziz Yari

The Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) has called an emergency meeting over the issue of the minimum wage.

Punch reports that the meeting, to be presided over by the Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, will determine exactly how much the governors think is payable.

The governors had previously agreed on paying ₦22,500, a sum said to be too little by the National Labour Congress (NLC).

The Federal Government has said it will pay federal civil servants ₦30,000 as the new minimum wage.

    They can call a summit, but they are still going to pay up…

    It’s election season and the NLC leadership should not take bribes and back down. Let’s see how they will enjoy massive strikes while they are on the campaign trail. Meanwhile, the logistical expenses of just this meeting (flights, charter, entourage, security, hospitality, etc) will likely cover the minimum wages of more than 100 civil servants. SMH
