The Federal Government on Tuesday urged organised labour not to embark on strike because of the minimum wage bill before the National Assembly.
The government said some measures it had taken since 2015 were geared towards the welfare of workers nationwide.
It said the decision on the minimum wage law, tax exemption and preservation of public service jobs were in the interest of workers.
President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Labour and Productivity Chris Ngige stated this during the opening session of the 2021 National Advisory Council in Abuja and Owerri, Imo State..
Buhari was represented virtually at the Abuja event by Vice-President Yemi Osibajo.
The Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress had on March 10th embarked on a nationwide protest over the minimum wage bill, which seeks to remove the minimum wage from the Exclusive List to the concurrent list.
