They gave the assurance after a closed-door meeting in Abuja, the nation’s capital, chaired by the Chairman of the Governors Forum, Abdulraham Abdurasaq of Kwara State, North-central Nigeria.

According to the Governors, negotiations will continue with stakeholders to reach a mutually agreeable solution.

The Nigerian government had last month instituted a legal action against the Governors of the 36 States of the Federation at the Supreme Court over alleged misconduct in the administration of Local Government Areas, LGAs.

The Government, in the suit marked: SC/CV/343/2024, which was filed by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Prince Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, is seeking full autonomy for all LGAs in the country as the third tier of government.

It specifically prayed the apex court to issue an order prohibiting state Governors from embarking on the unilateral, arbitrary, and unlawful dissolution of democratically elected local government leaders as well as for an order permitting the funds standing in the credits of local governments to be directly channelled to them from the Federation Account in line with the provisions of the Constitution as against the alleged unlawful joint accounts created by governors.

Also, the Nigerian government prayed the Supreme Court for an order, stopping Governors from further constituting Caretaker Committees to run the affairs of local governments as against the constitutionally recognised and guaranteed democratic system.

The Nigerian government had announced that President Bola Tinubu would engage in further consultations with the Governors and the private sector before deciding on the new minimum wage.

Over the past few months, the Nigerian and State governments, Organised labour and the private sector have been negotiating a new minimum wage.

At the last meeting of the tripartite committee, the organised labour rejected the N62,000 proposal by the government and insisted on N250,000 as the living wage.

The government, however had asked the Labour Unions to demand a more realistic and sustainable minimum wage.

The meeting was attend by Governor of Ogun, Nasarawa, Kano, Bauchi, Niger, Kaduna, Kebbi, Oyo, Zamfara, Anambra, Ebinyi, Imo, Delta, Kastina and Gombe States.

Others includes the Deputy Governors of Akwa Ibom and Borno States.

This meeting of the Governor’s forum is the first public meeting that the forum is holding after the tripartite committee on the new national minimum wage concluded their negotiations two weeks ago.
