Nigeria News – NLC Appeals To Buhari On The Proposed New National Minimum Wage
To expedite action on the proposed new national minimum wage, by transmitting it to the National Assembly in good time, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari.
On Monday, in Abuja, the NLC General Secretary, Dr Peter Eson-Ozo, stated this in an interview with newsmen.
The NLC General Secretary said the Tripartite Committee on the new national minimum wage had concluded its meetings and N30,000 was agreed upon as the new minimum wage for Nigerian workers.
“The report has been submitted to Mr President and what we expect now from Mr President is to do justice to that report, by quickly raising an executive bill on the new National Minimum Wage.
“And when that bill gets to the National Assembly, we want to assure Nigerian workers that we will be ready to engage them constructively,” Eson-Ozo stated.
Eson-Ozo added that there was no controversy over the agreed amount, as it was the agreement reached during the negotiations by members of the committee.
“We all signed up on the N30, 000, so why should there be any controversy,” Eson-Ozo asked.
