The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari, has again delivered on another election promise following his assent to the new and improved N30,000 minimum wage for Nigerian workers.
The ruling party while commending the president also congratulated all stakeholders that ensured the achievement, particularly the National Assembly, state governors, the Amma Pepple-led tripartite committee, labour/trade unions and indeed Nigerian workers.
In a statement signed Friday in Abuja by the APC’s national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said truly, the Nigerian 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.
“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.”
