    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    WordPress on several websites for about a year and am
    worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
    can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

Published

Wigan have failed in their appeal to get a 12 -point deduction for going into administration overturned, meaning they are relegated from the Championship, the English Football League confirmed on Tuesday .
The punishment for the 2013 FA Cup winners dropped them from 13 th to second from bottom of the second tier and they will play next season in League One .
An EFL statement said, “ An independent arbitration panel has ruled that Wigan Athletic’ s 12 – point deduction for entering administration last month will stand after dismissing the club ’s appeal against the sporting sanction .”
It added, “ The decision of the arbitration panel is final and legally binding. ”
The appeal was held on Friday when it was revealed that “ detailed talks ” with bidders over the sale of the club were to continue this week .
Manager Paul Cook quit the former Premier League club last week .
In a statement on their website , Wigan said, “ The club put forward a strong case and naturally we are disappointed at the decision.
“ The first -team management will now prepare the team for next season’ s Sky Bet League One campaign .”

Minimum wage: 11 states yet to implement, 15 months after

Published

on

By

Over a year after the N30,000 new minimum wage took effect in Nigeria, no fewer than 11 states are yet to begin implementation, while three states and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, are implementing partially.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari signed the N30,000 new National Minimum Wage Act into law, effective April 18, 2019, thus repealing the Minimum Wage Act of 2011.
While the Federal Government started implementing the new wage after negotiating and agreeing on the consequential adjustment with organised labour in October, labour had issued a December 31, 2019 deadline to states to end all discussions and agreements for implementation or face nationwide industrial unrest.
Fifteen months after the new minimum wage became law, Vanguard investigations revealed that the states that are yet to commence implementation are Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Benue, Ekiti, Kogi, Plateau, Imo, Nasarawa, Osun and Taraba.
Besides FCT, other states that are implementing partially are Bauchi, Oyo, Yobe and Kebbi.
Investigation revealed that negotiation on the new minimum wage and its consequential adjustment was concluded in Adamawa State before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, but implantation is yet to begin.
Also, in Anambra State, negotiation, according to checks, was concluded and signed on January 24, 2020, but the government is yet to commence implementation of the new wage as signed with organised labour.
According to Vanguard’s finding, the minimum wage committee in Akwa Ibom State has concluded its assignment and agreed to adopt the percentages used by the Federal Government’s consequential adjustment in December with a clause to discuss other grey areas within a month. This has not been done.
For Ekiti State, it was gathered that implementation for the new minimum wage for levels 1 to 6 was considered since October 2019, but till date, nothing has happened.

Similarly, while Kogi State is yet to implement the new minimum wage, it has slashed salaries of its workers, blaming dwindling allocations from Federal Government to states.
In Imo State, Vanguard gathered that the change of government, following the Supreme Court judgement that brought the current governor, Hope Uzodinma, affected the negotiation between government and labour.
Findings revealed that the new government has constituted another committee, while labour has submitted its proposal, but negotiation has not been concluded.
In Nasarawa State, it was learned that the issue appeared not to be on table for now as labour leaders in the state are insisting that the government clears all pending promotion, leave and other arrears and benefits before the issue of new minimum wage could be discussed.
For Osun State, while negotiation on the new minimum wage is yet to be concluded, the workers are being paid net of old salary.
Equally, in Plateau State, the government partially signed agreement with labour for the implementation of minimum wage before the outbreak of COVID-19, but has suspended implementation.
Vanguard checks revealed that the state government and organized labour were in negotiation before the COVID-19 pandemic, but the issue matter had since been stalled.
Partial implementation
According toVanguard checks, the FCT is implementing the minimum wage for its entire civil service but not implementing same for local government, including local education authorities.
For Bauchi, the state is implementing the new wage for levels 1 to 6 but it was gathered that negotiation for the implementation of the wage for levels 7 and above had been suspended.
In the same vein, while the government of Kebbi State has been implementing the new wage for levels 1 to 16, excluding the council workers, it added N7,000 to the salary of senior civil servants without recourse to labour and has refused to negotiate on the consequential adjustment for levels 7 and above.
Similarly, Oyo State is implementing the new minimum wage for its core civil servants, but yet to commence implementation for non-core civil servants, especially workers of ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs.
Also, Yobe State is implementing for workers between levels 1 and 6, and has equally awarded N7000 unilaterally to workers on levels 7 to 14 without recourse to labour.
It was gathered that negotiation is still ongoing to address other grey areas of the implementation of the new minimum wage.
Senior civil servants kick
Responding to the development, the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, said the present development was not acceptable, vowing to declare its position soon.
Speaking to Vanguard, Secretary General of ASCSN, Alade Bashir Lawal, said: “We are liaising with our state organs in the states of the federation to fully internalise the state of affairs of each state, knowing full well that each state has its peculiarities.”
NLC leaders meet today
Meanwhile, leaders of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, are meeting today to address the issue of implementation of the new minimum wage and other sundry workers’ welfare issues, with a view to responding appropriatel
