Map of Nigeria with 26 Governors


The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) met in Abuja on Wednesday night to discuss the issue of minimum wage being proposed by government and labour.

The state governors are insisting on the staggering of the implementation of the new wage if approved.

Also at the meeting were the Attorneys General of the 36 states of the federation as well as the Postmaster General of the Federation, Bisi Adegbuyi.

Their presence is in connection with Stamp Duties which has become a subject of controversy as the states claim that the amount due to states have not been remitted.

The management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has also been expected to attend over fuel subsidy but they did not show up.

The meeting is a precursor to the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting scheduled for Thursday.
