Written by Morenike Adebayo on August 22, 2016
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said all state councils where salary liabilities of up to three months exist will apply no pay, no work’ rule. NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, made this known when he featured on the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) forum yesterday in Abuja.
Wabba also called for total review of budgeting system in the country, saying that the current process is outdated. He cited South Africa as an example, saying the budget of the country is usually subjected to public debates. The NLC also condemned the Imo State government’s three-day work and two-day farming for workers, as recently introduced by Governor Rochas Okorocha. Wabba said that the policy which implied forcefully sending workers to farm is against the International Labour Organisation Convention and also against the rules and procedures in service.
