The President of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, Joe Ajaero, has dismissed reports of the organized labour demanding N105,000 as a new minimum wage from the Nigerian Government.

Ajaero said the N105,000 minimum wage was not from organized labour.

He spoke at a press conference after the tripartite committee meeting on Thursday.

The meeting, which included all committee members, started with a joint closed-door session that lasted approximately three hours.

According to Ajaero: “They have entered now, you can see them. They will come out later to present it to the general house for deliberation.

“We are all praying that everything shall be okay by tomorrow (Friday). That’s a wish for all of us. Information on N105,000 is not before us, either officially or unofficially. We are still at our position before now, having not presented it to us.

“Until it is made public, we can’t say the government has a position.”
