THE chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress,  Kogi State chapter, Comrade Onuh Edoka, has charged workers in the state to remain resolute as the state government has set up machinery to tackle all issues surrounding the payment of minimum wage in the state

Speaking to newsmen during the congress, he urged civil servants in the state to expect a better deal from the state government, saying that the congress is still negotiating with the government and hopeful of getting the desired result at the end of the negotiations.

He said “The state government has set up a committee to look into the payment of 30,000 naira minimum wage to workers of the state.
