According to a statement by the acting Chairman of the union , Anchaver Simon, and the Secretary, Alade Lawal , the workers ’ representatives also urged the government to keep to its promise of carrying out a general review of wages of public servants in the country.

The statement read in part, “ We wish to advise that since the 2019 National Minimum Wage was signed into Law by Mr President on April 18, 2019, the implementation should start from that date so as not to trigger another avoidable round of agitation by public service employees and their trade unions .

While thanking the leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress ; Trade Union Congress ; the Minister of Labour and Productivity , Dr Chris Ngige ; Head of the Service of the Federation, Folasade Yemi – Esan; and other stakeholders, the union reminded all employers of labour that action would be taken against any of them that paid below the new wage structure .
