Heavy Down Pour Storm Ilorin, Destroyed several Houses
- community cries out, call for government assistance.
Yesterday, it was a rainy experience for people within Ilorin metropolis as rain stormed the city and selectively destroyed several properties. The rainy experience was not favorable.
The SATCOMMEDIA learnt that the rainstorm that occurred on Saturday night also displaced many people at Oke Ogun community, in Edun, Idiagbon community, in Emirs road, Isale-Gambari among other affected areas.
Though no lives were lost in the incident.
An eyewitness from the community affirmed the incident and call on government for assistance, as many people left were devastated with little or without hope of assistance from any quarters.
He however, further stressed that, any assistance for non-governmental organizations would go along way in restoring the lost hope and further placed them back to normal life.













Minimum wage: Labour's reject FG Proposals

The negotiation committee set up by the Federal Government to negotiate the consequential adjustment arising from the  N30,000 new minimum wage has rejected what the government is offering.
The committee, which was inaugurated on May 14, has also  failed to meet the four-week deadline  to submit its report.
However, members  met twice last week with the enlarged membership collapsed into one technical committee of six members each from both sides.
The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, who was appointed as  chairman of the panel, stepped down  for the chairman of the National Wages, Salaries and Income Commission to head  the technical committee.
A principal officer of a labour union, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity, said government’s position on the consequential adjustment had been rejected by  labour representatives in the committee.
He said  labour decided to be careful in reaching an agreement based on what happened when minimum wage was last increased and also to avoid being blackmailed by the FG.
He said, “We are monitoring the negotiations between our representatives and government. There is likely to be some challenges which is normal. The government negotiating team is looking at what the government can pay conveniently, but labour is also looking at what will be good for workers  to avoid a  situation where  workers found themselves when the minimum wage was last increased.
“What happened then was that government came up with a block figure and out of poor negotiations because of   insufficient time, a paltry sum was spread on workers’ salaries, translating into about N900 increase monthly.”
The source said the Nigeria Labour Congress was not involved in the ongoing  negotiations.
