MAY DAY: Buhari makes promise on new minimum wage implementation



Again, Buhari asks PDP to explain 16 years of wasteful expenditure

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday made a promise to Nigerian workers over the implementation of the new N30,000 minimum wage.

He assured the workers that his administration would ensure that the new wage is fully implemented as well as create enabling environment for high productivity.

He stated this at the May Day celebration at Eagle Square, Abuja. He was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Buhari had last month assented to the new National Minimum Wage. Under the new wage, a Nigerian worker gets a minimum of N30,000 monthly salary as against N18,000 which was what the minimum wage used to be.

At the May Day event, the president also expressed gratitude over his re-election promising the workers that “we shall reciprocate the electoral gesture by focusing on things that will improve on the standard of living of the Nigerian masses.”
