25 Sep Labour Agreement With Fg
The Nigerian government says it is working to facilitate the removal of the minimum wage tax and has also agreed to cooperate with unions in the housing and gas systems, given that the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended the nationwide planned strike following a consultation meeting with the FG. The FG also announced that it will immediately make available to the Labour Party 133 LPG-powered commuter buses, which will be used in cities across the country and extended to all LGAs by December 2021. According to the Commission, “since the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Nigeria, just over 67,000 cases of Covid 19 have been reported, with just over 1,000 deaths. Most confirmed cases and deaths have occurred in urban/semi-urban cities and municipalities and the risk of spread persists.
