Members of the NLC jigawa chapter have  held peaceful protest on the lingering delay in the implementation of the proposed new national minimum wage.
Reading the address of the National President of the Nigeria Labour Congress,  Comrade Ayuba Wabba , Jigawa state NLC Chairman, Comrade Yau Dutse directed its members nationwide to vote out any politician or political party that refuses to pay the new national minimum wage of N30,000.00k
NLC President  further stated “we shall continue to consolidate our efforts to strengthen already existing platforms and structures to give teeth to our firm resolved to remove from power anti-labour governors and political leaders in the forthcoming elections.
He  urged government to desist from using the threat of mass sack or the barbaric policy of ‘No work no pay’ ” to break our resolve at this would only clarify our position.”
“For any government contemplating mass sack as a response to our demand for the implementation of the new national minimum wage of N30,000, we wish to offer you this free advise the consequences of workers retrenchment would be too grievous for any political office holder truly elected by the people to contemplate.
Furthermore, NLC has called on President Muhammadu Buhari for spedy transmiting of New Minimum Wage Bill  to the national assembly for the commencement implementation of the proposed wage bill.
Earlier members of the Jigawa NLC matched to the state secretariat to submit its demand to the State Head of Service for onward transmission of their demand to Governor Badaru Abubakar to the federal government.
Responding, the Head of Service has assured NLC members prompt passage of their message to president Buhari through Governor’s Badaru Abubakar.
It could be recalled that the Tripartite Committee concluded its work on new national minimum wage since last October last year upon the adoption of N30,000 as the new national minimum wage but to no avail, blaiming the government for unusual delay tactics.
