The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kwara State chapter, may again proceed on another industrial action as part of the industrial action declared by the National body over the protracted Minimum wage and increase in Oil prices.

At a meeting in Ilorin earlier today, the executive of the union resolved to join the industrial action, declaring a resolve to stand up to the Kwara State government in order to forestall its alleged disregard for workers in the state.

Meanwhile, a meeting of the 36 state governors is ongoing in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, to consider issues around the minimum wage and the planned increase in the pump price of petroleum.

The governors are to deliberate on whether or not to increase the pump price of petrol, take clear decisions on how to implement minimum wage across the 36 states, as well as provide further palliatives to cushion the impacts of Covid-19.
