Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, said this in a statement issued by Samuel Olowookere, director of press in the ministry.

The minister on Wednesday met with labour leaders who were part of the tripartite committee on the new national minimum wage to give them an update on the government’s position.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had declared a total strike following the meeting, saying both parties could not reach an agreement.

But Ngige maintained on Thursday that the meeting as successful.

“The meeting was, in fact, successful as both the Federal Government team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment and the leadership of the organised labour agreed to reconvene the meeting of the National Minimum Wage Committee on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018.

“This is to give enough time for the National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission to round off the assignment given to it.

“As a result, labour agreed to reach out to its organs of leadership with the October 4th resumption date as demanded by its National Executive Council with a view to suspending the proposed strike,” the statement said.
