Leo Nkah, Ebonyi NLC Chairman, stated this in an interview with Newsmen on Friday in Abuja, while adding that Buhari has proved to be a caring leader.

The labour leader, who is also, the President, Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Ebonyi Chapter, expressed hope that state governors would not drag foot in paying the new wage to their workers since it was a collective agreement.

He extended commendation to the national leadership of the organised labour for their doggedness throughout negotiation for the new national minimum wage.

Nkah voiced out the need to continue the fight, especially at the state level, to ensure that states adopt salary table released by relevant government agencies.
