Members of the House of Representatives have approved the sum of N30,000 as the new national minimum wage. President Buhari had, last Thursday, requested the approval of N27,000 as against the N30,000 agreed by the stakeholders.
The ad hoc committee set up on the New Minimum Wage Bill presented its report on the floor of the house, which was unanimously adopted by the lawmakers.
Tuesday’s reading was the third on the Minimum Wage Bill. The committee recommended N30,000 in agreement with the resolution by the tripartite committee set up by the President.
