The Federal Government and the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) will continue negotiations on the national minimum wage on Sunday, in spite of a court order stopping the labour from embarking on strike.

The labour union had announced that it would embark on an indefinite strike action from Tuesday, November 5, 2018, to force the government to increase workers’ minimum wage from the current N18,000 to N30,000
