MAIDUGURI, North-East, Nigeria – The Nigeria Labour Congress, (NLC) has confirmed that workers in Borno state have mostly received their January 2020 salaries with the new minimum wage increase implemented by Governor Babagana Zulum.
State Chairman of NLC, Comrade Bulama Abiso, gave the confirmation in a message he personally conveyed to the Governor’s media team on Friday morning for the purpose of dissemination.
”Borno State government under the able leadership of Prof. Babagana Zulum has commenced implementation of a new minimum wage of 30,000 for workers and its consequential adjustments.
“The organized labour in Borno state appreciates the Governor for keeping to his pledge to make workers welfare as part of his priority.
“We urge all civil servants to reciprocate by re-dedicating themselves to duty,” the statement reads.
Abiso assured that although the NLC is yet to receive any complaint, it’s ready to raise concerns with the government in the event any worker fails to see the reflection of the minimum wage in the salaries received for January.
The NLC however appealed to Governor Zulum to extend the implementation to workers in Local Government Areas and Local Education Authorities.
