The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to expedite action on the proposed new national Minimum Wage by transmitting it to the National Assembly in good time.

Dr Peter Eson-Ozo, NLC General Secretary said this in an interview with newsmen on Monday in Abuja.

Eson-Ozo said the Tripartite Committee on the New National Minimum Wage had concluded its meetings and a report of N30, 000 was agreed upon as the new minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

The NLC General Secretary told Newsmen that there was no controversy over the agreed amount, as the figure was the agreement reached during the negotiations by members of the committee.

Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage concluded its negotiation process on November 5 and submitted the report to Mr President on November 6.
