What Lawan Told NLC About Proposed Nationwide Strike



Senate Presidency: 37 PDP Senators-Elect ‘Endorse’ APC’s Lawan

Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has today pleaded with the Nigeria Labour Congress to drop the decision to commence a nationwide industrial action.

Naija News understands that the labour union is currently planning a strike to protest the continuous delay in implementing the N30, 000 minimum wage.

According to Lawan, Nigeria cannot withstand such action.

Lawan made the appeal when he was paid a visit by the executives of the NLC and the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, led by their Presidents Ayuba Wabba and Sunday Sabiyi in Abuja.

He said, “We should not encourage personal issue to overshadow our collective responsibility to nation-building.

“We will journey with you to ensure absolute implementation of the minimum wage by the Federal government,” Lawan pleaded.
