The Nigerian Labour Congress has expressed its concerns over the lack of urgency from the presidency to pass the N30,000 minimum wage bill. Speaking on Monday at this year’s ‘Harmattan School of the Congress”, Mr Ayuba Wabba, president of the NLC, has warned that the President is stretching the patience of the NLC officials and has called for the immediate implementation of the bill.
In his words:
“We don’t know why the president has not transmitted the executive bill, the report of the tripartite committee to the National Assembly for an enactment into law, because workers patience is running out. Minimum wage is not a favour but a right of a worker because the law states that after 30 days, a labourer is worthy of his wage”
He also questioned the lack of support from governors who opposed the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage, “But are spending billions of dollars in the name of security votes which they can’t account for. We have maintained that any governor that said he can’t pay the 30,000 should go to his state, gather workers and tell them they are spending billions of dollars in the name of security votes but once it comes to the payment of N30,000 minimum wage, they are saying workers are just 20 percent” Mr Ayuba said

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)
The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.
Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.
He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.
The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.
The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.
The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.
CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.
It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
