National Assembly to Kill the Minimum Wage Bill


A bill that was sponsored by Garba Datti Muhammad from Kaduna state, which basically proposes that the issue of the minimum wage should be taken off the exclusive duties and be placed under the concurrent list, which now means that all state can negotiate and fix the minimum wage in their states respectively, doesn’t go well with the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress.

On Wednesday, March 10 2021, Labour organised the protests at the National Assembly complex in Abuja and House of Assembly complexes in the 36 states to press home its demand that the plan to re-classify minimum wage negotiation from the Executive List, to the Concurrent List, be dropped.

The protesting workers led by Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President Ayuba Wabba were addressed by the Lawmakers of both chambers, and the Lawmakers promised that the bill will not see the light of the day.

“The bill will be killed the way a similar one was killed during the eighth National Assembly,” Senator Sabi Abdullahi told the protesters.
