TUC ultimatum to FG misplaced – Ngige

1 Mins read

Senator Ngige said that the ultimatum was misplaced as according to him, it was addressed to the President of Nigerian, which he said contravened labour laws.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, on Wednesday, faulted the Trade Union Congress, TUC, on the seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to revert to the old prices of petrol and electricity tariff, if not the union will embark on strike.

Senator Ngige said that the ultimatum was misplaced as according to him, it was addressed to the President of Nigerian, which he said contravened labour laws.

This is as the FederalExecutive Council, FEC, has approved a new national policy on occupational safety and health, tagged National Policy on Occupational Safety 2020.

Briefing State House correspondents at the end of the virtual FEC meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Minister contended that the President that the letter was routed to was not recognized by the International Labour Organization, ILO, law.

He said, “The TUC issue, the seven-day ultimatum was misplaced because they were writing the President and issuing an ultimatum to him. The President is not recognised by ILO.

“The competent authority for this nature of the dispute in Nigeria resides in the man who oversees them, which is whoever is the Minister of Labour and Employment.”

On the new national policy on occupational safety and health, the Minister said it was aimed at ensuring that all workers are safe at their workplaces across the country and that it was derived from provisions of the Nigerian constitution and the International Labour Organisations, ILO, convention.
