The two parties have engaged in series of meetings, raising anxiety and frustrations among public workers, who have waited patiently for the new wage. While Speaking in Abuja on Monday at the continuation of a conciliatory meeting, Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, said the meeting was an opportunity for information sharing and an avenue to soften ground for a final meeting, slated for Oct. 15. He told the labour leaders to be open-minded in their dialogue so that both parties could get a way out of the minimum wage logjam. Ngige said he believed that the meeting would bring an end to issues in contention, if both parties agreed and understood each other’s positions.
