The national executive council of the Nigeria labour congress says it will not renege on its 14-day ultimatum to the federal government to find a lasting solution to the myriad of challenges facing the work force and Nigerians at large.


The union made their stance known in a statement by its President, Joe Ajaero who claimed that the consultations with the government has remained unfruitful and the union will not be a party to political games, aimed at crippling the will of the union to defend the rights and welfare of it members and the public.



On the issue of one-million-naira minimum wage, Ajaero noted that the current economic realities if not checked will further push the union to increase the minimum wage in line with the value of the Naira in order to ensure the welfare of its members.

The labour leader also promised that the union will not back down until its demands are met to at least a reasonable percent, calling on the government to expedite action on the economy before it gets out of hand.
