The group’s chairman, Abdrafiu Adeniji, and secretary, Alade Lawal, stated on Wednesday, that workers were finding it really difficult to surive daily challenges due to the cost of goods and services that have soared over the years.
The statement read, “The tripartite committee on the minimum wage and the National Assembly have done a good job by approving N30,000 as the national minimum wage and accordingly deserve commendation.
“It is now left for the President to sign the bill into law and bring the minimum wage saga to a positive conclusion.
“The current N18,000 monthly minimum wage has become inadequate and workers are finding it extremely difficult to cope. This underscores the need for the President to sign into law the N30,000.000 National Minimum Wage Bill so the bodies that will work out the consequential adjustments arising from the new wage can be put in place.”
