N27, 000: House of Reps okays new minimum wage bill

The House of Reps

The House of Representatives has okayed the new National Minimum Wage bill passed to it by President Muhammadu Buhari just last week.

The passage was coming a day after the House conducted its public hearing.

Members at plenary on Tuesday, considered the report of the ad hoc committee clause-by-clause basis and passed the document.

However, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) at the public hearing said, it agreed on N30, 000 wage and not N27, 000 on the bill sent to the legislature by the Presidency.
