Workers In NW Nigeria Protest Over Minimum Wage

Workers demand payment of minimum wage, also complaining 6 years leave allowances unfulfilled, other abuses.

Workers in southwestern Nigeria on Tuesday protested over minimum wage violations as well as other alleged labor abuses, local media reported.
The workers' protest came after a 14-day ultimatum they gave to Dapo Abiodun, governor of the state of Ogun, elapsed, as they demanded he address their demands or risk industrial actions, according to local website The Daily Post.
After the 14-day ultimatum ended, the protesting workers are accusing the state government of insensitivity, according to the report.
In their protest, the workers also complained of the lack of payment of outstanding six years' leave allowances and 134 months unpaid pension and demanded payment of the negotiated minimum wage by the end of September, according to the report.
Some labor leaders in the state are reportedly meeting with the state government in order to deliberate on some of the demands the workers have raised, said The Daily Post.
Earlier, the workers had threatened to start a strike unless their demands are met. -
