Labour asks Buhari to Sign Minimum Wage Bill Immediately



………. Minimum Wage Bill
The Nigeria Labour Congress on Wednesday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the new minimum wage bill.

The NLC said since the National Assembly approved the new minimum wage of N30,000 and passed it to the President for his assent nothing had been heard about it.

The union’s Head of Information and Public Affairs, Benson Upah, who spoke to our correspondent on the issue, said workers would be grateful if Buhari signed the bill this month.

He said, “The President constituted a committee that worked on the figure that was submitted to him and he sent it to the National Assembly as an executive bill.

This underscores the need for the President to sign into law the N30,000.000 National Minimum Wage Bill so the bodies that will work out the consequential adjustments arising from the new wage can be put in place.”
