Labour, FG resume talks in Aso Villa – moneyamebo


Abuja: The Punch reported that the Federal Government and the Organised Labour are currently meeting at the Chief of Staff Conference Room of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.


Addressing State House Correspondents on Sunday, President Bola Tinubu’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, said the President agreed to review the Provisional Wage Increase from N25,000/month to N35,000/month for both senior and low-grade workers.

Labour had insisted that the PWI be extended across the board and run till a new minimum wage is agreed upon.

However, calls to extend the validity of the offer beyond six months did not pass.

In a statement issued by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, some of the resolutions reached at Sunday’s meeting were that, “A sub-committee to be constituted to work out the details of implementation of all items for consideration regarding government interventions to cushion the effect of fuel subsidy removal.”

“The NLC and TUC will consider the offers by the Federal Government to suspend the planned strike to allow for further consultations on the implementation of the resolutions above”, the statement also read.

Representatives of Labour are the NLC President, Joe Ajaero; his TUC counterpart, Festus Osifo; NLC General Secretary, Emma Ugbaja and the TUC Secretary General, Nuhu Toro among others.

On the government’s team are the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu; Minister of Finance, Wale Edun; Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, and the Minister of State for Labour, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha.
