State Governors have offered to pay a sum of N22,500 as minimum wage as against the N30,000 demanded by labour.

According to a statement by the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Governor Abdul’aziz Yari Abubakar, the governors concluded based on their ability and capacity to pay.

The organized labour had earlier threatened to embark on a fresh nationwide industrial action from November 6.

Today (Tuesday), the unions commenced a protest in different parts of the country, insisting that the government must approve the N30,000 minimum wage and nothing less.

They maintained that by November 6, if the government fails to meet their demands, they would embark on the indefinite strike.
