Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has confirmed payment of new minimum wage to workers in Borno state for January 2020.
Borno State Chairman of the NLC, Comrade Bulama Abiso, in a statement on Thursday, said: “Borno state government under the able leadership of Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum has commenced implementation of a new minimum wage of 30,000 for workers and its consequential adjustments.

“The organized labour in Borno state appreciates the Governor for keeping to his pledge to make workers welfare as part of his priority. We urge all civil servants to reciprocate by re-dedicating themselves to duty” the NLC chairman wrote.
Abiso noted that although the NLC was yet to receive any complaint, it was prepared to raise concerns with the government in the event any worker fails to see the reflection of the minimum wage in his/her January salary.
The NLC, however, appealed to Governor Zulum to extend the implementation to local government and local education authorities.
