President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged by the Nigeria Labour Congress,NLC to expedite action on the proposed new national minimum wage, by transmitting it to the National Assembly in good time.

NLC Secretary-General, Dr. Peter Eson-Ozo who stated this while answering questions from newsmen in Abuja on Monday said that 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,” he said.

He also concluded by saying that there was no disagreements over the figure as all members of the committee involved during the negotiations agreed to the new minimum wage.

“We all signed up on the N30, 000, so why should there be any controversy,” he added.
