The Nigeria Labour Congress has lambasted the Nigeria Governors’ Forum for pegging the minimum wage at N22, 500 and subsequently pegged the minimum wage at N66, 500.

Ayuba Wabba, the  President of the NLC, said this at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

The NLC President said the NGF was not known to law and was thus an illegal body.

Wabba said all governors should return to their respective states and consult with workers rather than hide under the umbrella of the governors’ forum.
