•Labour and Employment Minister, Senator (Dr.) Ngige

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has commenced dialogue with Labour Unions again in Abuja, on Wednesday, as time runs out on a deadline issued by the unions for the payment of the thirty thousand naira minimum wage.

According to a press statement signed by the Director public relations unit of the ministry of labour, the meeting is part of the federal government efforts to prevent the industrial action which the workers have planned to embark upon by mid-October.

The communiqué notes that both the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress and the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council are participating in the latest meeting with the minister Of Labour.

Labour leaders had issued a joint communiqué on October the seventh, warning that they cannot guarantee industrial harmony by October the sixteenth, if the Federal Government fails to reconvene a meeting of the committee on consequential adjustments. (Channels TV)
