The Federal Government said the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage would conclude its negotiation before the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum issued by the Nigeria Labour Congress.

Ms Amal Pepple, Chairman of the committee gave the assurance while speaking in Abuja yesterday.

The organised labour had on Sept. 12 issued a 14-day ultimatum that would expire on Sept. 25 to the Federal Government for the committee to reconvene and complete it assignment.

Labour also said it would commence nationwide strike immediately after the expiration of its 14 days ultimatum if their demand was not met.

According to Pepple, “We do not want strike and I am sure that even the Federal Government does not want strike, and also Nigerians.

“So, we pray that everything will be resolved before then so labour do not have to embark on any strike.”
