The Nigeria Labour Congress has accused the federal government of intentionally delaying the constitution of a tripartite committee expected to deliberate on the proposed N56,000 minimum wages.

The president of the NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, warned that Nigerian workers would not wait indefinitely for the government to constitute the crucial committee in view of the harsh economic situation in the country and its effect on workers.

Wabba made the comment while speaking at the opening session of the 4th National Gender Conference of the NLC in Abuja.

He lamented that some state governors with misplaced priorities had refused to pay workers and pensioners’ salaries.
