Senate Approves N30,000 As National Minimum Wage

The Senate on Tuesday approved the sum of N30,000 as national minimum wage for both the federal and state governments.

The approval followed the adoption of the report of the adhoc committee on the National Minimum Wage chaired Deputy Chief Whip Francis Alimekhena (APC, Edo).

The N30,000 approved by the Senate is N3,000 higher than the N27,000 proposal submitted by the Executive arm in January.

The Senate approval followed that of the House of Representatives, which equally approved N30,000 as national minimum wage in January.

Speaking after the passage of the bill on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, Senate President Bukola Saraki commended the patience of Nigerian workers and labour unions.

    look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write post

    to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
