There was a drama at Eagle Square as workers reject the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mrs Biola Bawa.
Ngige had declined to address the crowd in his capacity as the minister and sent the permanent secretary because he (Ngige) represented President Muhhammadu Buhari at the occasion.
But the workers chorused “no, no, no’’ to the move and thereafter continue to chant, “minimum wage, minimum wage.’’
The incident disrupted the May Day celebration for more than five minutes.
As the workers surged toward the podium to protest the move, Ngige and top officials of the labour union had to step in to calm them.
The crowd thereafter shouted “we don win, we don win’’ as the permanent secretary stepped down from the podium and walked into state box.NAN
