This is contained in a communique issued by Zamfara NLC Chairman, Sani Halliru and acting Secretary, Ahmad Abubakar in Gusau, on Saturday. According to the communique, “The State Executive Council in session is not satisfied with the minimum level consideration and treatment being accorded to labour issues by the state government and its officials.” The communique said all efforts to interface with Governor Bello Matawalle and brief him on the current realities had proved abortive. “Having clearly observed that all doors to reach out to him have been shut down to the congress by some key designated government officials, the Sec-in-Session resolved to collectively comply with national directives on strike for non-implementation of the new national minimum wage if not properly engaged for discussion by the state government,” the communique said. “We charged the state government to ensure appropriate data on death and retirement being recorded in the civil service as the two create surplus financial vacuum to support the government in actualizing its constitutional duty of implementing the new minimum wage. “The N100 million offered by the state government for the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage across board in all the payment point is too meager as the projected table of the said amount is nothing to write home about,” it said.
