The Nigeria Labour Congress has urged state governors to pay all outstanding salaries before the May 29 handover date.
This call was made factional Deputy President of the NLC, Peters Adeyemi, at the ninth National Delegates Conference of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria in Abuja.
The National Administrative Council of the NLC had on March 19, 2015 set up a committee saddled with the responsibility of compelling state governments to pay over eight months salary arrears owed workers.
Last week, the Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, himself a former President of the NLC, had urged labour to unite and compel state governors owing workers’ salaries to pay before the May 29 handover date. The congress had on December 31, 2014, said 11 states owed workers their salaries.
