Federal Government of Nigeria has lost a suit from stopping Labour from going on the planned Nationwide strike schedule to hold Tomorrow Tuesday.
The Punch news reports that the court presided over by Justice Sanusi Kado also refused to grant a prayer for an order to compel the government to immediately commence the process of adopting N30,000 as the new national minimum.
The controversy surrounding the minimum wage begins to linger on the air as both parties refused to agree on the amount to be paid as minimum wage.
Nigeria Labour Congress NLC has tabled the minimum wage to be N30,000, the Federal Government is willing to pay N24,000 only for the Governors to slide it to N22,500.
The only acceptable price for the Labour is N30,000 and anything short of that Labour will go ahead of the planned Nationwide strike.
However, FG has rushed to court to stop Labour from going on the strike tomorrow but the court rejected a request for a fresh order stopping the organised labour from embarking on its planned indefinite strike scheduled to commence Tuesday.
