Sunday Trust - - NEWS - By Mustapha Suleiman

The Min­is­ter of Labour and Em­ploy­ment, Chris Ngige, has said a con­cil­ia­tory meet­ing with the tri­par­tite com­mit­tee has been fixed for to­day.

Speak­ing in an in­ter­view in Abuja, the Min­is­ter said a sim­i­lar meet­ing was called on Thurs­day, but Labour failed to turn up on the ex­cuse that it was hav­ing meet­ings in La­gos.

Ngige as­sured Nige­ri­ans that gov­ern­ment would do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to avert the Or­gan­ised Labour strike sched­uled for Novem­ber 6.

He, how­ever, ex­pressed worry that the Nige­rian Gover­nors Fo­rum couldn’t raise their N 22, 500, pro­posal to the fed­eral gov­ern­ment’s N24,000.
