A minimum wage table has been requested by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Ebonyi Chapter to enable workers to receive the new pay as quickly as possible.
The group commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the N30,000 new minimum wage bill into law.
This was stated by Ebonyi NLC Chairman, Mr Leo Nkah, in an interview with Newsmen today in Abuja, while adding that Buhari has proved to be a caring leader.
Nkah further called for quick release of the minimum wage table to enable workers receive the new pay as quickly as possible.
Nkah, who is also, the President, Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Ebonyi Chapter, expressed the hope that state governors would not hesitate to pay the new wage to their workers since it was a collective agreement.
He also commended the national leadership of the organised labour for their doggedness throughout negotiation for the new national minimum wage.
Nkah stressed the need to continue the fight, especially at the state level, to ensure that states adopt salary table released by relevant government agencies.
