We have been longing for this N30,000 national minimum wage to be approved for a very long time but today it has been approved by Nigerian Senate.
According to Senator Shehu Sani (Kaduna Central), this approval was made by the Senate Committee on New Minimum Wage,
From his tweet on Thursday, the senator said, “The Senate Committee on New National Minimum wage met yesterday and approved the new national minimum wage bill; 30k as minimum wage and 75k as penalty for non-compliance.”
Deputy Majority Whip, Sen. Francis Alimikhena was appointed by the Senator as the acting chairman of the ad-hoc Committee on Minimum Wage.
The President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, who made the announcement at plenary on Tuesday, said Alimikhena would work in an acting capacity while the Chairman, Sen. Olusola Adeyeye, was away on health grounds.
Saraki charged the committee to expedite action on the matter to enable the Senate catch up with the House of Representatives which had already passed the bill.
