The Federal Government on Friday requested the assistance of the International Labour Organisation, in the review and strengthening of Labour laws in the country.
The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, William Alo, made the request while receiving the ILO Director General, Guy Ryder, in his office in Abuja.
He also requested ILO’s assistance in capacity building for professional officers of the ministry.
According to him, there is the need to strengthen the Labour Inspectorate System in the country by providing technical assistance with regards to granting quotas for full fellowships to facilitate access to training programmes.
appreciating the ILO for the Decent Work Country Programme I and Decent Work
Country Programme II, Alo appealed to ILO to extend its usual full support to the Nigerian
Government in the formulation and implementation of Decent Work Country
Programme III, which had become overdue.
