It is expected that the meeting, which will be presided over by the Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, will take a definite stand on the amount the governors will be able to pay as minimum wage to avert a strike by the organised labour.

Earlier in the day, labour had warned the government not to propose anything less than the N30,000 they initially agreed on, otherwise the industrial action that was previously planned will take effect.
