FG, Labour meet on petrol price, electricity tariff hikes Thursday

You are mistaking minimum wage to mean salary review, Ngige tells Labour

The Federal Government will meet with the organized labour on Thursday to resolve the impasse caused by the recent increase in the pump price of petrol and electricity tariff.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) had earlier in the week resolved to organize a nationwide protest against the hike in petrol price and electricity tariff on September 28.

The Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Charles Akpan, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
