The State Chairman of NLC, Comrade Hameed Benco-Ademola who made the plea in a letter addressed to the governor on behalf of the union of which a copy was obtained by Edu-Biznews on Monday in Abeokuta, is calling for conversion of the current transportation palliative to N25,000 wage award for public and core-workers and N20,00 for pensioners on the payroll of the State Government 

"The Congress is passionately appealing to your good office to review the palliative and convert it to wage award in this  distribution: Public & Core workers - #25,000, Pensioners - #20,000"  

The union added that the prompt convertion of the transportation palliative to wage award for workers, would further increase the level of trust and sincerity of the organized labour in the present administration in the state

"The National Living wage will be rounding up very soon and d payment may not exceed one or two months in writing Our dear State in Gold.

"His Excellency, this singular action will award your administration more trust, sincerity and support from the Organized Labour and workers at large", the union stated
