We at the Nigeria Labour Congress wish to express our appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari for signing into law the new national minimum wage bill of N30,000.
We commend Mr President for doing the needful.
However, we would use this opportunity to call for immediate implementation of the law, given the fact that this process has dragged on for nearly two years.
In furtherance of this, we urge employers, particularly federal and state governments, to commence immediate negotiations with the appropriate unions on the impact of the new law on the wage structure with a view to timely and judicious implementation.
