Breaking : President Buhari transmits new minimum wage bill to national assembly

Ita Enang, senior special assistant to the president on national assembly affairs, said the bill was transmitted to the parliament on Wednesday.

NAN reports that Enang did not give details of the content of the bill.

The national council of state had approved the sum of N27,000, while the federal government said it would increase to N30,000 for its workers.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) rejected the N27,000 new minimum wage following its adoption.

Peter Ozo-Eson, NLC general secretary, said the council has no jurisdiction determining another amount after a tripartite committee has submitted its report. “It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states,” he said.

Ozo-Eson, however, said the NLC has called for an emergency national executive council meeting for Friday to weigh on the deadline given to government within which to submit an executive bill to the national assembly. – #regrann
