Listen to article

The Governor of Anambra State, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has described as false the allegations by the president of the Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, that he was inciting other governors against accepting ₦70,000 minimum wage. 

The Eastern Updates reports that Comrade Ajaero made the accusation during an interview on national TV.

In a press statement by his Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, Soludo denied that he was running an anti-workers government in Anambra, while also listing his numerous achievements for workers in the state.

According to the statement: “The state government wishes to categorically debunk these allegations.

“In fact, at no time did Governor Soludo incite or influence other state governors against paying the proposed N70,000 minimum wage.

“The government of Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo has enjoyed a smooth and cordial relationship with the labor leaders in Anambra State, even as at the time of issuing this statement, no letter of notice of industrial action has been received by the state government.”

Governor Soludo urged NLC and all workers in the state to disregard such allegations and recognise the substantial progress and numerous initiatives undertaken by his administration to enhance worker welfare and human capital development.

He said the proposed strike was unnecessary and counterproductive at this juncture, as it might seem like the NLC leadership is being politically influenced by desperate external actors to orchestrate an artificial industrial crisis in Anambra State.
