Labour Law: Federal Government To End Casualisation Of Workers

Federal Government has advised employers of labour to provide decent jobs for workers in the country or face severe consequences.

Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige, said this in a statement signed by the Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations in the ministry, Charles Akpan, in Abuja.

The statement quoted Ngige to have spoken while addressing a joint visit by the leaders of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN and the National Pension Commission, PENCOM.

He called on employers of labour and Labour unions to pay greater attention to providing formal and regular jobs for workers across the federation.

The minister also noted that unemployment and indecent jobs were huge incubators of national insecurity. According to him, insecurity is caused by people who feel cheated by the society.

IPMAN National President Chinedu Okonkwo, said the visit was to seek the collaboration of the ministry in keying into the Federal Government’s Micro Pension Plan for millions of its workers.
