The move is aimed at stopping the organized labor from embarking on a strike about a month before the presidential election.

With the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and its affiliate unions threatening a protest and a nationwide strike, the government on Tuesday agreed to send the bill on January 23.

The decision came after three days of talks.

Tuesday’s meeting held between 1 pm and 3:30 pm at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.

The labor unions agreed to the date but warned it would not tolerate a breach.

The national president of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, urged the government to keep to the date so that the process can be completed.

The FG has repeatedly dithered on the labour’s demand for a new wage figure, refusing to commit to N30,000 recommended by a tripartite committee.
