In what appears to be a means to put an end to the country’s labour crisis, President Muhammadu Buhari has forwarded a proposed New National minimum wage of N27,000 to the National Assembly.
Confirming this, the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu read President Buhari’s letter on the floor of the Senate during plenary.
The letter further noted that passing the bill on time would stabilize the economy as Nigerian workers have been looking towards solving the Labour crisis.
“Mr. Senate President, I hope if the bill is passed on time, it would stabilise the nation’s economy and avoid workers’ strike. ”
It will recalled that the National Council of State, a body of past and present leaders of Nigeria, approved the N27, 000 minimum wage at their meeting in the state house on Tuesday January 22nd.
