June 12: ‘We’ll soon send bill on new ninimum wage to National Assembly’ – Tinubu


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that he will soon send a new minimum wage bill to the National Assembly.

Tinubu disclosed this in his democracy day broadcast on Wednesday.

He noted that his government did not crackdown on Organised Labour as the dictatorship government would have done.

“We have negotiated in good fate and open arms with organized labor on a national minimum wage, we will soon send our executive bill to the National Assembly to enshrine what has been agreed upon in the next five years or less,” he said.

Recall that the National Minimum Wage committee submited its report to the President on Monday.

In the report, the Federal Government proposed N62,000 minimum wage and Organized Labour proposed N250,000.

Also, Governors and Organised Private Sector proposed N57,000 and N62,000.
