Leaders of the organised labour have failed to attend the meeting convened by the Federal Government to continue negotiations on the national minimum wage for workers in the country.
However, the government continued the dialogue with the organised private sector at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, on Sunday in Abuja.
Mr Mustapha was joined by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, as well as the Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed.
The meeting followed a statement credited to Dr Ngige who revealed that the negotiation would be trailed by another meeting of the National Tripartite Minimum Wage Committee on Monday.
He had appealed to all members of the committee to attend the meetings in the interest of the nation and to find a solution to the minimum wage impasse.
