NLC Calls on Tinubu to Appoint Labour Leaders to Key Government Positions

By Milcah Tanimu

The National President of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN), Kabiru Minjibir, urged federal and state governments on Wednesday to appoint labour leaders to sensitive positions in government.

Minjibir, who also serves as the National Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), made this appeal during a courtesy visit by Comrade Onuh Edoka, the Special Adviser on Labour in Kogi State, and other stakeholders.

The visit was in response to allegations that Kogi State had failed to implement the N30,000 minimum wage. In defense, Edoka explained, “The confusion about the N30,000 minimum wage arose from misinformation. A report was sent to the divisional headquarters of the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), mentioning Kogi state among those yet to implement it. However, the current Governor is paying the N30,000 minimum wage to all workers in Kogi State.”

Edoka also assured that the previously strained relationship between the Kogi State government and labour unions has been resolved.
