Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it has no minimum wage issue in Rivers State.

The Rivers NLC leader said, “The issue of the minimum wage is not peculiar to Rivers. Here in the state, we have signed the National Minimum wage agreement. We have also told workers to go back, get the chart, compare it with the salary you are taking.
