Buhari endorses N30,000 minimum wage 

186

President Muhammadu Buhari has endorsed N30,000 minimum wage recommendation by Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage.

Buhari while responding said he was committed to having a new national minimum wage within the shortest time.

He said the necessary machinery will put in place to transmit an executive bill to the National Assembly on the new national minimum wage.

He told labour assured the workers that as the Executive Arm commences its review of the submission, “we will continue to engage you all in closing any open areas presented in this report. I therefore would like to ask for your patience and understanding in the coming weeks.”

Buhari urged workers not to allow themselves to be used as what he tagged, as “political weapons.”

The President said that in the last three years, his administration has focused on correcting this deficiency.

Buhari said, “We are working to create a diversified and inclusive economy.

“We are pushing to clear pension arrears owed to our retired workers with the limited resources available to us.

“We supported State Governments to pay workers salary. And of course, we set up a committee in order to review the minimum wage of workers.
