House Approved 30,000 As New Minimum Wage For Nigerian Workers


The long dragged minimum wage of the Nigerian workers has finally been approved by the House Of Rep. Which approves 30, 000 naira as what all workers will be paid as minimum wage. House of Representatives on Tuesday approved N30.000 as new minimum wage for Nigerian workers. 

The approval followed the consideration of the report of the new minimum wage committee at Tuesday plenary. The House also approved a clause that would make the new bill operational on the date it would be assented to by the president. Recall that a public hearing was conducted on the new bill yesterday consequent upon the accelerated hearing accorded to the Bill by the House.

By this development, the House has countered the National Council of State, NCS and the State Governors who had earlier at an emergency meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja approved N27.000. Meanwhile, the House has formally adjourned plenary to February 19 due to the Presidential and National Assembly elections that would hold February 16.

Nigerians needs to be served the best because they are people with no problem. Do you think there will be not be problem in other states as they said earlier that they can pay only 27,000?
