Minimum Wage: We Will Name And Shame Governors Who Refuse To Comply – NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is to interact with the International Trade Union Congress (ITUC) to place names of state governors where workers are being owed pensions and salaries for several months on a “watch list”.

The ITUC is the world’s largest trade union federation.

It was formed on November 1, 2006, out of the merger of the World Confederation of Labour and the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions.

President of the NLC, Mr Ayuba Wabba, made this known in a statement while addressing the Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP) at its 17th anniversary on Tuesday Abuja.

He said that apart from “naming and shaming” these governors, the NLC would soon instruct Nigerian workers to monitor various airports around the country to stop such governors who may have completed their term from escaping the country

“We will instruct workers at the nation’s airports to disallow and disgrace any governors trying to leave the country in order to enjoy themselves overseas.

“We have issued statements to these governors owing salaries, informing them that they cannot go anywhere to enjoy the monies they have carted away.

“They will be disgraced and chased away,” he said.
He stated: “instead of using the money to make life good and build the country for the good of everybody, a few elites chose to embezzle what is meant for all, for their personal use.”

The NLC Boss, however, assured pensioners that the NLC would not yield its effort to ensure the issue of minimum wage and pension were addressed.

He said that if the government must address the issue of pensioners, it must address the welfare of pensioners.

This, he said would ensure that workers cease from looting.

Wabba however, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the 33 per cent increment and payment of pensions arrears for the Nigeria Airways workers.
