Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has constituted a committee to review workers’ wages in the face of the current subsidy removal on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) popularly known as petrol.
The committee, which was constituted during a meeting with labour leaders in the state at the Executive Chambers, had been granted eight weeks to turn in its report.
Governor Makinde said following the removal of subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), it became imperative for the government to take another look at the salary structure to cushion its effects on workers.
At the meeting attended by Oyo State chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kayode Martins and his Trade Union Congress (TUC) counterpart, Olatunbosun Olabiyi.
In his reaction, the NLC chairman said minimum wage review was overdue. He then called on the state government to work towards its quick realisation.
