N18.000 based on current revenue allocation – Aremu

ORGANISED Labour has said the N18,000.00 new minimum wage was based on current revenue allocation formula and argued that governors have no reason to hing their implementation of new wage signed into in March 2011 by President Goodluck Jonathan on a new revenue allocation.

Under the umbrella of the National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, warned that earlier the governors, private employers and federal government paid the new wage the better to avoid industrial sanctions by workers and the burden of the accompanying arrears avoidable and criminal delays.

General Secretary of NUTGTWN and a Vice President of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Issa Aremu, in a statement said the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, and governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, got it wrong when he said the state governors were not in a position to immediately implement the 18,000.00 minimum wage unless there was a new revenue allocation formula.
