The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has while the meeting was on tweeted that an agreement had been reached.
Keyamo said on his Twitter handle: “After some delicate negotiations (with both ministers as conciliators), the government and labour have finally reached an agreement on the consequential adjustment of other wages following the implementation of the enhanced minimum wage of N30,000. We are working on the communiqué.”
Following on this, the President of the Trade Union Congress, Quadri Olaleye, and the Secretary General, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, issued a statement confirming the agreement.
The statement read: “We commend the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan, and her team for their sincerity. Though they argued that the government could not afford to meet our earlier demand of N30,000 minimum wage across board because of the economic situation in the country, we made them understand that some people could not be more Nigerian than others. If we are tightening our belts, government should also do so.”

Nigeria needs more prayers to overcome security challenges, others – Senate President, Lawan lawan 1024x576

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Wednesday said that Nigeria would need prayers to overcome its current challenges.

Lawan said this when a delegation of the Christian Legislators’ Fellowship of the National Assembly visited him.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser (Media) Ola Awoniyi, he said, “given the situation we are in today, the various challenges that Nigeria and its people face, we even need to pray more.

“Today, we face serious security challenges. Where we have security agencies, which are mandated to ensure that we are secured and protected, if nothing, we should pray for them that they are able to perform well.

“It is not only in empowering them with weapons; the power of God is beyond weapons.

“I’m sure that all people of faith will continue to pray for our security agencies to protect us,” he added

Lawan also stated that as leaders, they had the responsibility to ensure that they provided leadership, to continue to seek the intervention of God in the way and manner that we lead our people.

“We have to do whatever we can to be as truthful, transparent and accountable to our people,” NAN quoted him as saying.
