FG, states owing March, April workers’ wage award – TUC

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has criticised the federal and state governments for failing to pay the workers’ salary award for March and April 2024 on time.

TUC President Festus Osifo chastised federal and state governments while briefing the media on the outcome of the National Executive Council meeting in Abuja on Thursday.

According to Osifo:

“The last wage award paid to workers was in February 2024. That of March and April 2024 has not been paid as we speak, we call on government to release it so that when salary is coming in, the wage award should be paid too.

“While a number of states have been up and doing in terms of remitting the wage award, states like Benue have been lagging on workers’ welfare. Anambra is also culpable for this payment. We thought that since it is one state being led by an economist, he should be able to put on his thinking cap. Imo, Delta, Akwa Ibom, Kebbi and Katsina are equally lagging seriously.

“There are provisions that ought to have been followed before you increase the electricity tariff, and there ought to be stakeholder engagement, but in this case, it was not done.

“Today, electricity tariffs are being increased when some people are still using estimated billing. We have expected that by now every single house in Nigeria should have a pre-paid metre; we insist that there must be stakeholder engagement to arrive at a critical decision like this.”
