“In the interest of our students, we beg those governors yet to comply with the payment of the new minimum wage to quickly comply.
“This is because NANS might be left with no other option than to join forces with the Nigerian Labour Congress to fight to a standstill, any governor who refuses to comply.
“However, to avoid any form of unrest, we beg that the governors comply as soon as possible,” he said.
