All effort by the Government representatives, Labour leaders, and organised private sector to reach an arrangement on Monday over the minimum wage of Nigeria’s Labour force.
But the negotiation was futile as the Tripartite committee decided to transfer the resolution of the meeting to President Muhammadu Buhari, for onward transmission to the National Assembly.
The report is to be submitted to President Buhari on Tuesday 6, November by 4:15 pm.
Government wants to pay N24, 000 as minimum wage, but the labour leaders are insisting on N30, 000.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday intervened in the impasse by appealing to the labour unions, especially the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to consider the rot his administration inherited from the previous governments.
