Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Kwara State News, The Informant247

The Kwara State Chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has expressed displeasure over Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s failure to implement the new national minimum wage.

The labour union in a statement by its Chairman, Aliyu Issa Ore, said “despite all efforts made to make His Excellency see reason for the immediate implementation of the constitutionally approved minimum wage for the workers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is saddening that government have not commenced the payment of the N30,000 new minimum wage to its workers”.

The statement added, “Considering the present economic situation, which has brought untold hardship to the workers, we are seriously appealing to His Excellency to, as a matter of utmost urgency, give his Executive consent for the implementation of the new wage as the year has already gone.”

Meanwhile, the labour union also urged the Governor to withdraw a case instituted against the Organised labour union in Kwara at the National Industrial Court, sitting in Akure, Ondo State.

“We call on His Excellency, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, to direct the Attorney General of the State to withdraw the Court Case instituted against the Labour Movement at National Industrial Court (NIC) Akure, Ondo State, which form the part of the gentlemen agreement for the suspension of the last strike action in the state, in the interest of all of us,” the statement read.
