Labour issues December ultimatum for N30,000 minimum wage

The Organized Labour yesterday gave December as deadline for the full implementation of the N30,000 new national minimum wage.

It also warned that any reduction in the N30,000 agreed by the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage as contained in the report to the president or any further delay in its passage will lead to devastating consequences.

The President of Trade Union Congress (TUC), Comrade Bobboi Bala Kaigama and the Secretary General of the Association of Senior Civil Servant of Nigeria (ASCSN), Comrade Bashir Lawal, gave the warning at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the ASCSN, held at the Chida Hotel, Abuja on Tuesday.

They said Nigerian workers patiently await President Muhammadu Buhari to forward the Executive Bill to the National Assembly for its passage into law.

In his speech, Comrade Kaigama, who is also the National President of ASCSN, said the expectation of labour is that the full implementation of the N30,000 new minimum wage should not exceed December.

“It is on this premise that I strongly want to appeal to the Federal Government to fast track the process of enacting the new National Minimum Wage into law,” he said, adding that government should be able to complete the entire process before the end of this.

The TUC president also regretted that the core civil service, which is the engine room of government is the least paid in the Public Service, with other segments having their emoluments beefed up over the years.

The Secretary General ASCSN, Comrade Bashir Alade Lawal, said they were holding President Buhari to his words that he would send the report submitted to him to the National Assembly.
