The moves by the Federal Government and the organised labour to finalise the new minimum wage issue this month face yet another crisis.
Sources at the National Assembly told The PUNCH on Sunday that the legislature plans to go on another recess ahead of the presentation of an executive bill on a new minimum wage by the presidency, which is one of the agreements reached between the government and the worker unions.
The National Assembly is on Christmas and New Year recess and will resume on Tuesday.
While the Presidency plans to transmit National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Bill to the National Assembly on January 23, sources in the leadership of the National Assembly told The PUNCH correspondent that the lawmakers might go on another recess by January 24.
