The All Progressives Congress (APC) has submitted that the signing of the new N30,000 minimum wage by President Muhammadu Buhari is a fulfillment of an election promise.
The ruling party made the submission in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu and made available to newsmen on Friday.
Naija News recalls the President on Thursday, signed the new minimum wage bill of N30,000 into law after it had been previously passed by both chambers of the National Assembly.
The APC statement on the new minimum wage reads:
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) commends President Muhammadu Buhari on his assent to the new and improved N30,000 minimum wage for Nigerian workers.”
“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.”
“This is another solid demonstration of a President who matches his words with action. Nigerians will recall the President 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.”
