Members of the organized labour unions of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have embarked on a nationwide protest following plans to amend the national minimum wage act.

The protest kick started after a bill to remove the national minimum wage from exclusive list to Concurrent list passed second reading at the House of Representatives.

The alleged bill is being sponsored by Honourable Garba Mohammed of Sabon Gari Federal Constituency, Kaduna State.

The workers who are currently protesting in different states in the country, held up placards that read “On National Minimum Wage We Stand” , No To Minimum Wage on Concurrent List, “Yes To Minimum Wage on Exclusive List”.
