Minister of State for Labour and Employment, (SAN), disclosed this on Friday during a working visit to the Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies, MINILS, in Ilorin.

“We are attempting to amend all of the country’s labour laws. We’re going to change this institute’s constitution so that all labour centres are represented.

He pointed out that “all the labour centres are not represented in the governing council of this institute,” referring to MINILS.

The labour laws that established MINILS and others in the country, according to Keyamo, have become obsolete.

“The MINILS law was an old one; it was a decree that was later adopted as an act of parliament,” he explained, adding that “the Trade Union Congress, TUC, was not in existence at the time.”

“We are cognizant of the lack of balance in the governing council’s composition.”

MINILS had been harmed by high-level politics in the appointment of the institute’s head, according to the minister.

“We should not play politics with the appointment of the head of the institute,” he said, “because playing politics with who should head it has already killed this place.”

No one should play politics with a strategic institution like MINILS, according to Keyamo.

Comrade Isah Aremu, the institute’s Director-General, said in his speech that the management was working hard to get the institute out of its previous state of hopelessness.
