Senator Shehu Sani (PRP-Kaduna Central) has called on organized labour to demand a written position from the federal government over the proposed new minimum wage.
Concise News had reported that the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, had said the N30,000 minimum wage proposed by the tripartite committee set up by the Federal Government remains a recommendation.
The minister was reacting to reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had endorsed the recommended wage, which he said was still being considered by the President.
But Mohammed said Buhari would only take a decision and make his view known after considering the report.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Thursday, the lawmaker wrote: “In view of the conflicting signals coming from the FG over its commitment to NLC’s demand for the new minimum wage, its important & urgent that the union demand for written and unambiguous position, so that the union is not left in the Disneyland of phantom hopes, or ‘fall mugu’.”
