APC Chieftain Advises Buhari to Act Immediately on New Minimum Wage

Captain Sunday Adebomi (rtd.), a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has appealed to the Federal Government to resolve all issues delaying the implementation of the N30,000 national minimum wage to avert industrial action by workers.

Adebomi, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) on Tuesday in Oye-Ekiti, while reacting to the threat by the leadership of the Joint National Public Service Negotiating Council (JNPSNC) over the delay in the implementation of the minimum wage.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the JNPSNC had called on Nigerians to appeal to the Federal Government to implement the new wage, with adequate consequential adjustments, to avert the looming nationwide strike.

NAN further recalls that the council made the call following the failure of representatives of labour to reach an agreement with the government over the percentage of consequential adjustment for workers on Grade Level 07 to Grade Level 17.

Adebomi urged the Federal Government to provide a lasting solution to the delay in the implementation of the wage for workers in the country so as to avoid the imminent industrial action.
