Strike Looms In Kano As Government Returns To Old Minimum Wage

Industrial action looms in Kano State as the government has said it can’t pay workers’ wages for March 2021. Kano branch of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had, on Thursday, issued a seven-day ultimatum for the state government to settle workers’ salary according to the new minimum wage of N30,000.

The workers issued the ultimatum after rejecting government’s offer to return to the old salary structure for March pay.
But in a statement yesterday by the Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, the government made it clear that given the present financial situation, it would find it difficult to implement the consolidated salary for March.
