Nigeria In One Minute

Minimum Wage: We’re monitoring NASS, says NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress has said it is awaiting the transmission of an executive bill on the new minimum wage from the Presidency to the National Assembly.

There has been fear of fresh crisis in the negotiation between the organised labour and the Federal Government on the new minimum wage. The fear followed a disclosure by a source at the NASS that lawmakers would go on another recess on or before the presentation of the bill on January 23, 2019.

The recess, it was gathered, would enable the lawmakers to prepare for elections in the February 2019 elections.

The General Secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Peter Ozo-Eson, told The PUNCH correspondent in an exclusive interview in Abuja that the union was watching the situation with interest and monitoring the activities of the National Assembly and Federal Government on the new minimum wage.
