Ms. Amal Pepple, Chairman, Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage gave the assurance while speaking with newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the organised labour had on Sept. 12 issued a 14-day ultimatum that would expire on Sept. 25 to the Federal Government for the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage to reconvene and complete its assignment.
According to Pepple, “We do not want strike and I am sure that even the Federal Government does not want strike, and also Nigerians.
“So, we pray that everything will be resolved before then so labour do not have to embark on any strike,” she said.
The Chairman also noted that the committee have worked hard and have finished its assignment.
She, however, noted that organised labour, private sectors and individuals from others sectors have submitted their figures but the state governors were yet to submit theirs.
“We have some figures from organised labour, organised private sectors and individuals from others sectors.
“But, we still need approval from the Federal Government and some figures from the state governments.
“We do not want to fix a date for the reconvening of the meeting on our own without everyone’s opinion.
“We believe it is better to have all the figures and the government position for the sake of peace.
“So, that we can comfortably say that we have taken everyone position into consideration before the recommendation,” Pepple added. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
