The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) on Wednesday night met in Abuja to discuss issues of minimum wage.
While the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is proposing a minimum wage of N65,000 for workers, the governors have been insisting on the staggering of the implementation of the new wage if approved.
Also on the meeting agenda was the issue of insecurity, especially the killings in Jos.
The governors were also expected to meet with the Postmaster-General of the Nigerian Postal Service and the Attorneys General from 36 states of the federation on the contentious issue of Stamp duty.
Part of the agenda was to discuss the face-off between the executive and legislative arms of government.
NAN reports that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) expected to make representation on the actual oil revenue generation and remittance from the corporation was absent.
