The collaboration of Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) has claimed that proposed N56, 000 national minimum wage for workers in the country was no longer acceptable due to the price hike of commodities in Nigeria.

“But then when we got to the tripartite committee and the committee called on all stakeholders to submit memorandum.

He says the current economic table and data of the nation were taken into consideration when drafting the new demand

“In responding to the request for a memorandum, we then use current economic indices to make a fresh demand. So, what we place and what we demand is an outcome of analysis we carried out.

“We did the analysis using the current economic table and data of the nation and of cause that came to something different.

“We are going to maintain what is in the memorandum that we have submitted to the tripartite committee and it is not something or a figure we will be discussing in public.”

Mr. Peter also revealed that the fresh demand was a joint memorandum by the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).

The NLC general secretary noted that the forum had earlier submitted the demand at the last meeting of the tripartite committee.

“We have also formerly made the presentation to the committee and we have defended it. We have also taken into account changes between the first demand and the current position, Ozo-Eson said.

Why Governor Elect In Imo State, Ihedioha Might Not Be Inaugurated

The Governor-elect in Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha might not be inaugurated on 29th of May, 2019 as he was charged to Federal High Court by a plaintiff, Clifford Eze who was the Democratic Alternative, DA candidate in the past Gubernatorial election in Imo state, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

The Justice, PA Rimgim at the federal high court said that the plaintiff is very wrong for bringing up election matter after the election and then defense counsel, Emeka Ihejirika back what the justice said up by insinuating that the Clifford Eze does not follow the due process of the court thereby not in line with the court proceedings.

The defense counsel further state that, ”it is a primary knowledge that the regular court does not entertain post-election matters.

“The plaintiffs are already at the tribunal and the same things they brought up for argument at the tribunal are the same things they brought to the regular court.

“Apart from the federal high court lacks the jurisdiction to entertain the suit, it was an abuse of court processes.

“That was why the court slammed an N5m cost against the plaintiffs. It is as simple as that.”
