The protest follows an earlier meeting of union representatives presided over by the minister of labor and employment, Chris Ngige.

NLC had threatened to embark on a over the federal government’s refusal to send the tripartite committee report on the minimum wage on N30, 000 to the National Assembly

Mr Emmanuel Bankole said the labor leaders agreed to meet with the government to ensure that the processes for the transmission of the bill on a new minimum wage would be completed.
