NLC URGES KANO GOVERNMENT TO PAY N20,000 WAGE AWARD                                                                                           28-02-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                        The Chairman of the Kano Council of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Kabiru Inuwa, has urged the Kano state to pay the N20,000 wage award which was agreed upon by the government and Labour in the state.

Kabiru Inuwa stated this during a press briefing organized by the Kano council of the NLC following the cancellation of Day 2, of the NLC nationwide protest over economic hardship in the country.

He appealed to the Federal Government to immediately stop implementation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank policies in the country.

He Noted that the NLC and the state had signed an agreement on payment of N20,000 to labour but the government has failed to fulfill its promise.

The NLC Chairman pointed out that a letter had been sent to the governor to remind him of the agreement signed between both parties he added:

“Most of our members will soon embark on the Ramadan fast which is just a few days away.

“We believe that if the wage award is paid on time, it will cushion the effect of the hardship faced by most of our members.

“We seek an immediate halt in the implementation of the IMF and World Bank policies in Nigeria because it has brought about hardship and impedes our nation’s security and undermines our sovereignty.

“Our leaders collect loans from these institutions and spend the funds without accountability.

“If the funds were properly utilized, we wouldn’t find ourselves in this situation.

“The FG should investigate to recover the looted funds that have been collected from these institutions.
