Why Governors Flout Minimum Wage Law – NLC

The Assistant General Secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Chris Onyeka, on Monday, revealed why many state governors are flouting the Minimum Wage Act.

According to Onyeka, Governors are disobeying the law because they do not believe in the sanctity of the law.

Onyeka gave the position in Abuja on Monday in an interview with newsmen on minimum wage law and its implementation.

Naija News understands that some governors are yet to pay ₦30,000 minimum wage as workers await a new minimum wage to be passed into law.
