Endorsing New National Minimum Wage Involves FEC And NEC —Presidency

The presidency has denied media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has endorsed the N30, 000 new minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC, after receiving the report of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage from the committee’s chairman, Ama Pepple.

According to Vanguard, a source in the presidency who spoke on condition of anonymity said, It is not the duty of the president only to endorse a new national minimum wage. Adding that the process involves the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the National Economic Council (NEC) and the National Assembly.

According to the source, ”it is imperative for us to always avoid misinterpreting a written speech there was no time at the meeting when President Buhari endorsed the new minimum wage.

”President Buhari only expressed his commitment to ensuring the implementation of a new National Minimum Wage.

”The president’s speech at the event was immediately made available to the media and nowhere indicated that the president endorsed N30,000 Minimum wage.”
