New Minimum Wage : What I Expect From Workers – Buhari

1 min


President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged Nigerian workers to justify the signing into law of the new N30,000 National Minimum wage by showing more commitment to their work.

The president stated this shortly after signing the national minimum into law in Abuja on Thursday.

He also enjoined the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to show more understanding of the current socio-economic situations in country.

He said: “I expect them (workers) to be more committed to their work at whichever level.

“I will like the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to look at the economic situation of the country, the population, the poor infrastructure that we are trying to fix in terms of roads, rail and power.

“So, I wish Nigerian workers the best of luck.”

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang, had earlier told State House correspondents on Thursday in Abuja that the implementation of the N30, 000 minimum wage just signed into law by President Buhari would take effect from April 18.

According to him, the bill now makes it mandatory for employers of labour in both public and private organisations to pay N30, 000 as minimum wage.
