NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, who was represented by the NLC vice President, Amaechi Asuguni, made the call during the 7th Quadrennial National Delegates Conference of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) held in Abuja on Tuesday.
He disclosed that the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had set up strategies to checkmate state governors who fail to comply with the payment of the new minimum wage.
“The NLC and the TUC are in a close monitoring in ensuring that no state will fail to comply with the payment of minimum wage,” he said. He added: “We are willing to do anything legitimately in order to ensure that we put them on their toes in making welfare of workers a priority.
“No state in Nigeria will say N30,000 is too much for its workforce.”
