The organized labor reached an agreement with the Nigerian government last week Friday on the consequential change resulting from the current N30 000 minimum wage. Workers in the Ondo State have urged Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to fulfill his promise to them and immediately begin paying N30,000 a month for the current national minimum wage.

The staff said anything short of paying that amount would turn into a breach of agreement by Akeredolu in a letter addressed to the governor by organized labor in the region.

The staff said anything short of paying that amount would turn into a breach of agreement by Akeredolu in a letter addressed to the governor by organized labor in the country.

The staff in the letter said, “After the eventual meeting of 18 October 2019 which resulted in the agreement to change emoluments as a result of the N 30,000 new minimum wage bill signed in April 2018 by President Muhammadu Buhari, organized labor in the Ondo State is therefore praying for the immediate implementation and payment of the agreed wage increase effective April 2018.

“The import of this letter is to further build on and remind our dear Arakunrin of the promise made to Ondo State workers May 1, 2019 wherein he promised to pay, when the process of negotiation is concluded. “Hence, this reminder for quick action with regard to payment of the new approved wage.”
