Bankole defined that the elimination of the minimal wage from the unique checklist would breed poverty and inequality among the many nation’s workforce, saying it’s a declaration of struggle on Nigerian staff.
He burdened that the protest could be the primary stage of the wrestle for the survival and livelihoods of tens of millions of Nigerian staff.
Responding, the Speaker assured staff that their request could be granted anytime the invoice comes up for debate.
Oluomo promised that every one the calls for of the Ogun NLC could be offered to Governor Dapo Abiodun, noting that every one points affecting staff’ welfare had been being addressed by the State Authorities.
