The administration has denied media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has supported the N30, 000 minimum wage permitted by law proposed by the Nigeria Labor Congress NLC.
Reports were overflowing on the web the previous evening that President Buhari subsequent to getting the report of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage from the board of trustees’ administrator, Ama Pepple, embraced the new the lowest pay permitted by law.
As indicated by Vanguard, a source in the administration who talked on state of obscurity, said there was no time at the gathering when President Buhari supported the new the lowest pay permitted by law. The source included that President Buhari just communicated his pledge to guaranteeing the execution of another National Minimum Wage.
“The president’s speech at the event was immediately made available to the media and nowhere indicated that the president endorsed N30,000 Minimum wage. It is not the duty of the president only to endorse a new national minimum wage. The process involves the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the National Economic Council (NEC) and the National Assembly. It is imperative for us to always avoid misinterpreting a written speech”
