Nasarawa elders back Al-Makura on salary review

Concerned Nasarawa State Elders on Tuesday expressed support for Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura’s decision to review workers’ salaries in the state.

The elders said the review has not infringed on any extant law establishing minimum wage as it is also in the collective interest of entire citizens of the state.

The group announced its support at a briefing by its spokesperson, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, in Lafia.

Bello, who spoke on the impasse between the organized labour and the state government, called for understanding in order to end the ongoing indefinite strike by workers across the state.

The elders said there was the need for the state government and labour leadership to work together in order to end the strike.
