President Buhari has finally endorsed the N30,000 minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC.
President Buhari gave the approval for the new minimum wage when he received the report of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja yesterday November 6th. The report was submitted by the committee’s chairman, Amal Pepple.
President Buhari also promised to send a bill to the National Assembly to effect the change from N18,000 to N30,000.
The NLC had earlier planned to go on a nationwide strike yesterday if the Federal government failed to adopt the N30, 000 minimum wage it proposed.
