President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed doors with representatives of Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) over the disagreement between the organised labour and state governors on the proposed N30,000 minimum wage.

Although the meeting was brief reporters covering the State House were barred from the meeting even as the governors declined to comment on the outcome of their meeting.

Some of the Governors spotted at Aso Rock by our correspondent included the Chairman of the forum and Governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, that of Lagos, Akinwumi Ambode, Bauchi, Atiku Bagudu among others.

Recall that controversies over a new National Minimum Wage has lingered for quite some time with the Federal and State governments still divided on how to go about its implementation.

While the Federal government had initially settled for N24,000 states had insisted they can’t go beyond N22, 500 but pressures from the organised Labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress and United Labour Congress had compelled the presidency to settled for N30,000 in order to avert a proposed strike by the unions.

Recently the Nigerian Governors Forum met in Abuja, the nation’s capital where they threatened to sack workers in their employ if they must abide by the N30,000 a development Labour kicked against.
