The N27,000 approved by the National Council of State as National Minimum Wage  has been rejected by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, the NLC General Secretary, made this known in Abuja.

According to him, the council has no jurisdiction determining another amount after a Tripartite Committee has submitted its report.

Ozo-Eson said the congress has called an emergency National Executive Council meeting for Friday to weigh on the deadline given to government within which to submit an executive bill to the National Assembly.

The NLC general scribe added that the Federal Government was only projecting a shutdown of the economy with its latest action.

“This is because workers should not be held responsible for any development after its NEC meeting on Friday,’’ he said.

He also added that: “It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states.
