Speculations have it that the Organised labour has threatened to go on indefinite strike action if the Federal Government refuses to approve the N30,000 minimum wage as recommended by the tripartite committee set up by the President Muhammadu Buhari.
Musa Lawal, The secretary general of the Trade Union Congress, has reacted to comments issued by the Minister of Information Lai Mohammed, who said that the report of the tripartite committee was a mere recommendation and that the NLC has been pushed to the wall by the Federal Govt.

Lawal further stated that the union had agreed to hold off its initial planned action because the Government expressed willingness to accept the report of the tripartite committee.
“The Government can say anything they want to say. Why were they panicky before? Why did they agree to the N30,000?”
“They can call it a mere recommendation or whatever they want to call it but the important thing is that at the end of the day if we do not get the N30,000, they know what we will do,”
