The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s assent to the new N30,000 minimum wage as “another solid demonstration of a President who matches his words with action.”
The APC National Publicity Secretary Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu in a statement on Friday recalled that Buhari had severally assured of a new and improved national minimum wage for workers.
“The assent of the N30,000 minimum wage by the president is indeed another election promise delivered.” He said.
He added: “Truly, our workers deserve a new, improved and implementable minimum wage in view of current economic realities.
“Commendably, the welfare of workers has remained a top priority of the President Buhari-led APC administration as exhibited in the federal government bailouts to state governments to pay workers salary, housing schemes for civil servants among other welfare packages.
“We congratulate stakeholders that ensured the achievement of this laudable feat, particularly the National Assembly, state governors, the Amma Pepple-led tripartite committee, labour/trade unions and indeed Nigerian workers.”
